Despite the obvious challenges of the last year or so three Year 11’s have managed to complete all the work necessary for their GCSE art.

They have produced an impressive body of work ranging from silk painting, textiles, collage work and printing to paper mache pots as well as artist research. They have been working hard both at school and at home during the lockdown and isolation periods.

Prior to lockdown years 11, 10 and some year 9 students who were interested in doing art took part in a silk painting workshop. We had a visiting teacher who showed us some great techniques to use for silk painting. The year 11 students have applied some of the techniques to their final pieces for the GCSE.

Unfortunately, the GCSE work is now locked away waiting for external verification so we cannot add any photographs to this article.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
