I started in Hamilton College in 2001 in fifth year. Mr Wilson and Mrs Roy in the Art Department were fantastic. I learned so much from both of them and they gave me the confidence to apply for Art School.

  • Physical Environments            -     These are the key areas of physical knowledge, which include a number of themes identified at Intermediate 2/National 5
  • Human Environments              -     These are the key areas of human knowledge, which include a number of themes identified at Intermediate 2/National 5
  • Environmental Interactions    -     Two core areas are extended and investigated via ‘real life’ case studies.
