Year 12 Photography students went on their first field trip of the year to the Cole Museum of Zoology, located within Reading University.

Students had to think carefully about the technical aspects of photographing preserved specimens and taxidermy through glass, but all approached the task with creative endeavour!  Students will use these photographs to respond to their brief studying Surrealism. We look forward to seeing their ‘dream like’ responses!



We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible!

Photography competition Winter '17


Congratulations to Ellie for winning third prize in the Reading Secondary Schools Art competition! Her beautiful felt and hand stitch piece ‘Starry Night’  was much admired by the public and judges. 

Thank you to Sailsbury’s New Art Centre for entertaining our GCSE 3D & Product Design students on Tuesday 19th September. The centre provided students with detailed talks and engaging practical tasks. Students found the day very useful as they discovered many materials and processes to experiment with in their own projects when returning to school. We look forward to seeing the students projects developing and how their inspiration from the visit will impact their work.


The time has finally come to view our Year 8 Art students Rivers of the World Art Exhibition taking place between the 13th September and 17th September,  9am until 5pm at The Weller Centre (formerly Amersham Road Community Centre) Lower Caversham, RG4 5NA.
