Photography can be eye-catching, inspirational and challenging. Digital photography is one of the three specialist A levels that the Art and Design department offers. We have a high level of success within A level digital photography at Churston. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge students, equipping them with the knowledge, techniques and skills to experiment, create and enhance their own photographs. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture and creativity of society.
