Our annual GCSE and A-level Art exhibition was once again greeted with fine weather, and the large number of pupils, parents, staff and governors who visited on the night agreed that it was a tremendous success.
The range and quality of the work at each level is a testament to the hard work that is undertaken by the pupils and it is little wonder that so much praise was forthcoming on the night.
As the culmination of two years of study, it is important that the pupils get the opportunity to showcase their work in a dedicated space as, for most, it is the first time that they have been able to see it displayed and mounted in this way and marks the transition from GCSE to A level or A-level to university.
The work will remain on display at school until the third week of June.
As well as appearing in the school’s display, Sixth Form pupil Helen Topham’s Cloakroom (excerpt pictured right) has been shortlisted to feature in the Royal Academy of Arts’ prestigious A-level summer exhibition.
Helen’s work has been shortlisted from a field over 1,450 submissions and will now be judged by a panel including Grayson Perry, with the final list of exhibits to be announced in early June.
