Success at the Royal Academy
The Visual Art department celebrates yet more success for our students.
Two of our Year 12 Fine Art students have been successful in their recent application to the Royal Academy of Art’s attRAct one-year online programme of study. 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. We are delighted to inform you that Abby Wood and Thomas Atkinson have secured places and will embark on this programme of study towards the end of January with the Royal Academy.
The course will include workshops with well-known contemporary artists, discussion groups, work placement opportunities and they will complete practical tasks, all of which can be included in their A level portfolios of work. This follows from our success last year, when two of our Year 11 Photography students completed the attRAct programme of study.
Huge congratulations to Abby and Thomas from all in the Visual Art department for their amazing achievement.
