Below is a collection of self-portraits created by the students of The Peele Community College in the Art Department. The art works offer an insight into students’ buoyant creativity, their ability to express a sense of self through their art work and above all their vibrant individuality.
At The Peele Community College we cherish the individual nature of each student and aim to enable students to express their unique character through a variety of mediums and cultural studies. When we learn to understand and value ourselves as individuals, then we learn how to expand and explore our unique talents as individuals. With this knowledge students can fully contribute to the society around us and allow the fullness of their characters to shine in life.

Art is an inspiring subject that will encourage you to consider a wide range of approaches to expressing yourselves through different materials, media and techniques.
During a full GCSE in Art and Design, the students will do four projects.
Using the work you have created during the course, you will need to present a portfolio of your best work for formal assessment. This will be worth 60 per cent of your final grade.
The remainder of your marks at GCSE ( 40 per cent) come from your Externally Assessed Task or Assignment. This is a project set by your examination board. You'll have time to create a body of preparatory work - in a sketchbook or journal, for example - before spending 10 hours on a final piece.
Both your coursework and Externally Set Task will be marked in the same way, using four Assessment Objectives.
Your work is assessed using four Assessment Objectives (sometimes called 'AOs'). The Assessment Objective are equally weighted, which means you get 25 per cent of your marks for each one. They are the same for both the coursework and the examination.In each project, your sketchbook covers the first three Assessment Objectives, and the fourth is your final piece.
