The West Bridgford School

A Specialist Technology Academy

TWO EXCELLENT DEPARTMENTS BECOME ONE

Art and Design Technology become 'ADT'adt2

 

Over the last three years Government-led changes to the school curriculum have focused on changing and reforming the 'English Baccalaureate' subjects such as English, Maths and Science.  However the school has historically seen great success in the more creative subjects such as Art, Graphics, Photography and Design Technology.  To continue to allow these subjects to have a strong voice in the school and maintain a focus on the importance of the creative subjects in educating young people the departments of Art and Design Technology will be amalgamating from timetable promotion.  This will make the department one of the largest in the school in terms of staff, students taught and courses offered.  Mrs Hart, the new Head of Department for 'ADT' has a strong vision of making the West Bridgford School 'the St Martins College of Nottinghamshire, with a strong focus on creative product design, visual creativity  and flair.  The creative industries remain one of the power-houses of the UK economy and are enjoying sustained growth.  A choice to study the subjects on offer in ADT should be viewed as not only as a chance to expand your creative potential but also as a pragmatic route to future, rewarding employment.  Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google was recently spoke about how the UK has stopped producing Polymaths as education has split between the sciences and the arts.  I hope to redress that balance with the courses that students can pursue in ADT, whether they are an artist, a physicist or an economist'.  The department will be holding their first ever joint exhibition on the 30th June between 4pm and 7pm.  All are invited to view the extra-ordinary work by GCSE students from both the Art and Technology departments.  Canapés and drinks will be provided.
