Open Evening Artwork Workshop


During Autumn term we held two hugely successful open events at the Academy. We were delighted to welcome prospective parents and students into the school and received some really positive feedback. Parents and students had a chance to take part in various faculty workshops around the Academy and speak to staff and students.

During Open Evening the Art Department, Miss Julian and Mrs Burnham, alongside some eager Year 9 helpers led mini workshops creating work inspired by Sonia Delaunay. All the artwork produced by local Year 5 and Year 6 pupils was then put together on a large canvas which is going to be put on display in the Academy. All students did amazingly well and the finished canvas looks fantastic. Congratulations to all those who took part.

During both events we held competitions for the visiting young people and we are very pleased to announce the winners below:
Libby, Hayes, Year 6
