  • The Tate is great....

    Today we took Year 7 students to the Tate Britain to look at the collection of British Art.

Students drew pictures of David Hockney's "Bigger Splash" and many were attracted by this beautiful painting by LS Lowry called "The Pond". Which was your favourite piece of work?

  • GCSE Art Exam

    On Thursday and Friday last week, Year 11 Art students spent 10 hours in the Art Room engaged on making their main pieces in their Exam project. They had spent over 10 weeks preparing for this, making sketches, studies and plans on their chosen topic. Some were working on a theme called "Food" and others on one called "Fantastic and Strange." Although it is an exahusting process the students were well prepared and both days went went smoothly. Now they have the long wait until August to find out how well they did.
