Curriculum Intent

In the Art department at The Victory Academy, we aim for our students to become confident, independent, aspirational and creative thinkers. We aim to develop students’ awareness of their own strengths, imagination and practical skills, through a balanced programme of study. Students’ acquire effective habits, take pride in their learning and develop a culture of respect for all. Our focus is to expand student’s cultural capital, through the investigation of different materials, exploration of artists from different backgrounds and to experience the visual Arts world around them. We wish to equip our students with the tools needed to make sense of the many images they see, and master visual literacy, which is essential to their growth as members of society and becoming global citizens.

Our aim is to build long term knowledge and critical skills, whilst fostering their understanding of themselves to develop their individual ideas and voices. Art plays an important role in the development of an individual’s understanding of empathy and emotional awareness, educating our students to become emotionally intelligent people. Our aspirational goal is for our students to share the belief that Art is a uniquely powerful subject, representing creative practices that shape our shared world.
