We are excited to announce that the artwork of QMC second-year students studying the Cambridge Technical Extended Dipolma in Art and Design will be showcased at the Proteus Creation Space from February 26th to 29th.
Teaming up with the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, our students have created their own designs for a local bench as part of their work experience placement for the ‘Streets Alive’ project.
The public will have the chance to vote for their favourite design at the exhibition, where the winning creation will be painted on the bench in Spring 🎨
‘Streets Alive’ has attracted contributions from some of Basingstoke’s finest artists and storytellers. We can’t wait to see a student from The QMC School of Creative Arts join this esteemed roster, marking the first student work to be featured in the amazing project 🌟
Join us for this momentous occasion and cast your vote! 🗳️
In this 2 year English Language A Level course, you will study the way that language varies and changes. This will involve a good deal of reading of texts, research and data and analysis of them. Attitudes to different varieties of language are also a key part of the course. You need to be curious, open-minded and willing to adopt new and very rigorous ways of studying and investigating the language you use every day. Please note that English Language is not a creative writing course.
Our passionate team of dedicated teachers will guide you through a range of contemporary and classic texts or fascinating research and case studies to help you develop expertise and build on your previous success at GCSE. Through lessons, clinics, enrichment courses , support workshops and trips English students at Queen Mary’s College are shown how to read, analyse and write about this rich heritage.
