From 2007 – 2011 I took pictures of some of the outstanding A Level work that I saw in schools and I have published them online using Flickr. It is not a comprehensive record as it consists of work I liked and that I was able to photograph easily: but it does represent some of the best things that were done by students in Bucks schools at this time. There are pictures of about 750 students’ pieces of work. The work is searchable (tags) by date and media and there are tags for sketchbooks and drawings as well. (Irritatingly I appear to have lost control of this flickr site and there are some rather tedious ads being placed on it. Much of the work appears to be there, but I am in the process of sorting and uploading these images as galleries on this site.
I have also made short videos of some of the A level art exhibitions I have visited over the last couple of years. These are embedded in blog posts alongside a commentary and can be found by searching under ‘6th form art‘ in the column on the right. However, the videos can be accessed directly by following these links to YouTube and Vimeo.
The Students’ Art Guide is a really good website with examples of students’ artwork plus information, examples and advice for (A Level) students. This is useful for students and teachers.
PS click here for a link to an old set of examples of KS3 work assessed into levels. The web pages were set up in 2003 as a set of examples of levels following a KS3 group moderation meeting. I found them by accident following an old link and am surprised they were still there I have long since abandoned that site. Interesting to see the sort of work that was being done then.

The work in this gallery is mainly A Level work and the pictures were taken at the art exhibitions held by the different schools in about June/July. Some of the pictures were taken at the festival of arts held at Waddesdon Manor.
