GCSE and A Level Art Visit to The National Portrait Gallery

In conjunction with the projects currently being undertaken by Year 10 and Year 12/13 Art and Design students, a study visit to The National Portrait Gallery and The National Gallery in London, took place on Monday 7th October 2013.

The aim of the trip for GCSE students was to generate ideas for the first coursework project ‘Faces and Features’. In The National Portrait Gallery students had the opportunity to make first hand studies of historical and contemporary portraits which will help them produce a personal outcome for the coursework project. Year 12 and 13 students made first hand studies in The National Gallery to help develop AS and A2 coursework units.

Trip to the Suffolk Coast

On Monday 23rd September a group of GCSE and AS Geography students visited the Suffolk coast. While in Suffolk we visited Dunwich and toured the nuclear power station at Sizewell.

We visited Dunwich first, a village largely lost to the sea after many years of coastal retreat. The students learnt a little about the history of Dunwich and how much of the village has now been lost to the sea. At its peak Dunwich was home to around 4000 people compared to only 50 today. After lunch on Dunwich beach we headed to Sizewell.
