We continued to be excited to work in our new Art studios. The new fit for purpose building has large windows which have views across trees and green spaces in the school grounds.
We have a small photographic studio space and have updated our Photography resources with new improved studio lighting and cameras. Energy saving climate controlled systems provide even temperatures throughout the year along contemporary classroom lighting systems. The classrooms are twice the size of our previous smallest art room in the old block. Younger students have the benefit of A level Art and Photography students completing independent study alongside them as the rooms have the space. Ten new PC’s have been installed in the classrooms along with a dedicated printer. Students also continue to use the schools wireless network on their iPads. Storage cupboards for student bags and blazers are provided during practical lessons.
Students have benefitted from lessons that can start quickly and be cleared up with greater efficiency due to the new room layouts.
