What’s on

Annual Exhibition

In July we exhibit work from our GCSE, AS and A2 students for public viewing, culminating in a private view one evening, where the students and their families can enjoy the exhibition whilst listening to live music from Simon Balle’s own musicians.


The Art department is open every lunchtime for drop-in art club.
On Thursdays we also hold a year 7 art club run by sixth formers.


Years 10 and 11 visit one of the London galleries each year.  Currently year 10 go to the National Gallery, and year 11 visit the British Museum.  Whilst we arrange a variety of visits for our A level students, they are also expected to visit at least one gallery each term, independently.

Help with finding out which exhibition to visit

If you have an iPhone or an iPad (or know someone who does) then you can download the free ART GUIDE APP from iTunes.  This tells you the current most popular exhibitions. You can also create your own wish list of exhibitions that and it will alert you if an exhibition on your list is coming to an end. It even knows your location and can tell you if there is one near you, or if you are about to accidentally walk past an interesting exhibition!
