Art and Design
My name is Linda Wrycraft and I am the Head of Art and a specialist teacher in Fine Art. I have been responsible for this subject at Marshfields for many years and work with a team of two other specialist art teachers, Ms Rebecca Robertson and Mrs Rachel Hallwood, we also have a dedicated TA, working with us Mrs Di Nicholas. I moderate GCSE art work for the exam board as this keeps me up to date and gives me a chance to see other students' work and other Art departments.
Art is taught to all of key stage 3 and key stage 4 students at the present time. I have organised schemes of work that will help students progress and develop to the best of their abilities, where all our staff will differentiate and give individual advice to students whenever possible. Each Student will be encouraged to develop their literacy, numeracy and computing skills within this subject aim to make sure students are given the best possible opportunity to develop their creativity, confidence, self-esteem, critical judgement and most of all their independence. I also help support the schools SHAPED agenda.
