On Monday 28th September, our 5th Form went on a trip to the local Roche Court gallery.
“The weather was again on our side to visit such a beautiful space tucked away in such a stunning location, there was so much to see throughout the day, with pupils really engaging and getting involved with each task that was set. The pupils came away much more confident and eager to take back their experiences from the space, back to the classroom and into their coursework. All the sculptures and exhibition spaces offered such a wide variety of techniques and mediums which really got the inspiration flowing for each pupil. Sculptures on display saw the work of David Nash, Barbara Hepworth and Peter Randall-Page. The staff were absolutely amazing throughout the day, setting tasks and challenges to test all abilities, with a brilliant workshop activity towards to end to wrap up the days exploring of the park, overall it was a wonderful day and enjoyed by everyone” – Annie Cutler, Art Graduate.
This trip was attended by pupils within their year group bubbles. Pupils were required to wear face coverings when inside the gallery.
