On December 1st 2015 our AS and A2 Art students took part in an educational visit to London. The morning was spent in the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea and the afternoon exploring the vast Natural History Museum. 

Students had the opportunity to explore a wide variety of contemporary artworks, subject matter and materials in the Saatchi Gallery. The exhibition UK/RAINE showcased emerging artists from both the UK and the Ukraine aged between 18 and 35 and gave a fantastic insight into the approaches to, and potential of, the creative process.

The architecture, skeletons and specimens of the Natural History Museum were a source of inspiration for some Year 12 project work based around the theme of ‘Fragile’. 

We look forward to sharing some outstanding A level work with you on the website as the year progresses.

Photographs from the visit are available to view in the PHOTO GALLERY.

 

Following their success through the Regional competitions earlier this year and at the National Festival in Birmingham in July, we were absolutely delighted when it was revealed that the Percussion Ensemble had been invited to perform at the Music for Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. 

On Monday 23rd November, the Percussion Ensemble not only performed at the Proms, they opened it!  Gavin Jones, Deputy Head and Head of Music, Mrs Cheryl Jones, travelled to London to watch their performance.  On her return Mrs Jones reported that no words could adequately describe how fantastic they were in the grand setting of the Royal Albert Hall, or how proud of them she was. 

We thank Mr Damien Pugh of Gwent Music Support for all his work with the ensemble and invite you to view the official photos from the evening taken by MFY and Classic FM, using the following links:
