Art Exam

The art department was totally wowed by the standard of work produced in this years GCSE exam. All three classes of students worked for 10 (yes that's TEN!) hours pushing themselves to their artistic limits and then some.

We are so very proud of all of you. Don't forget that you now have 2 weeks to brush up your coursework which is worth the other 60% of your GCSE grade - you have seen exactly where your best efforts get you in the last few days so you should all be UNSTOPPABLE!!!
