  • Royal Academy of Art attRAct one-year online programme of study

    Published 20/06/23

    Nationally, all students aged 15-19 were eligible to apply for this prestigious opportunity. After their letter of application was received, the shortlisted students then had to prepare a response to a set task, ready for an online interview. Abby Wood and Thomas Atkinson (both in Year 12) secured places and embarked on this programme of study towards the end of January. The course includes workshops with well-known contemporary artists, discussion groups, work placement opportunities and the completion of practical tasks, all of which can be included in their A level Fine Art portfolio. This follows on from our success last year, when two of our Year 11 Photography students completed the attRAct programme of study.

    Abby and Thomas have written a synopsis below of their experiences so far and included images of work undertaken.

  • Community project commission with Wootton Parish Council

    Published 20/06/23

    Towards the end of last academic year, we were approached by Wootton Parish Council with a proposal to help them enhance the look of the recreation ground, by painting a mural on the shelter. Our A level Fine Art students were given a brief by the Parish Council, and then they set about producing designs in response.

    The chosen entry was a joint design by Johanna Maoko and Meryem Sezer in Year 13. The Parish Council then disassembled the shelter and transported it to CCS where the students were able to begin work on it in the lower E block gallery area. Due to their A level commitments, Johanna and Meryem had to hand over the reigns to our Year 12 Fine Art students. Thomas Atkinson, Abby Wood, Sophie Tizzard, Hannah Denness and Abi Larner all helped paint the design, in conjunction with Teacher Mr Dawson and Art Technician Minnie Teckman.

    We are delighted to say that the shelter has just been re-erected in the recreational ground in Wootton for the whole community to enjoy. The Parish Council are absolutely thrilled at the outcome, and we look forward to more collaborative community work with them.
