8 Subject Requirements for September in Year 12

Subject Requirements for the start of the course Details / links / things you may need later on
ART None

At the beginning of the course we put together a pack for each student, this costs £35 and lasts for the whole course. You get an equipment pack with paintbrushes, books, paint, pens etc. This cost also subsidises printing costs and pays for the MDF boards / specialist paper you will need for your final pieces. You will only pay for one more book in Year 13.













White lab coat - Link is a suggestion only, it doesn't have to be that particular lab coat.
 Scientific calculator - Link is a suggestion only, it doesn't have to be that particular calculator.

Later on:

In September we offer the option to purchase the course textbook through school. We are usually able to purchase new textbooks at a discounted price, though second-hand textbooks are available online. It is also available on Kindle.
