  • Our new term

    There is much to look forward to in the Spring term. As our year 5 pupils continue with thier impressive "Hairstyle" project we are also eagerly anticipating the development of Year 6 "Big People" project. The Year 7s are due to complete their portraits and begin reseaching printing in a project about furrnishing designs. Year 8 students are about to embark on a fabulous painting project entitled "Fragmentation" which involves learning paper weaving as well as practising gouache painting and Year 9, once they have finalised their work on Movement, will begin to develop new pieces having investigated the art of the Pop Art portrait. Importantly, the Year 10 GCSE students are starting their second theme ("Me, Myself and I") as they simultaneously work on their final pieces in the first topic, Abstraction. Year 12 students are focusing on a major piece of work in the "Built Environment" project.

    Perhaps most crucially, our year 11 Art students will quickly complete their GCSE coursework and then immediatley become engaged in their externally set project which culminates , after a 15 week prepararation period in a 10 hour timed session. We wish them all the best..
