At Elliott Hudson we provide students with broad Art and Design opportunities taught by specialist staff. We offer four specialisms: Fine Art, Photography, Graphic Communication and Textile Design. Students can opt to study any of the disciplines listed above as a single A Level. Instead you may opt to study two Art and Design courses, resulting in you achieving two full A Level qualifications. Please note the decision to run each as separate courses will depend on levels of uptake. Mixed groups combining different specialisms will be run in the case of small numbers.
