Y11 GCSE Art students enjoyed a trip to London to visit the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A Museum.

The National Portrait Gallery has a range of exhibitions – some in place for only a few weeks, and other more long-term displays. There is something for everyone with portraits of celebrities to pre-Raphaelite artwork.

The V&A is the world’s leading art and design museum and currently has exhibitions on Mary Quant, Fashion in Motion and Jewellery

The trip was directly linked to the students’ GCSE course and was designed to support both their portfolio and exam work.

Ian Rose, Deputy Headteacher, said: “The National Portrait Gallery is a globally-recognised attraction so we are delighted our students have had the opportunity to visit. The work on display will inspire, and be used as an exemplars by teachers, so we can be confident this trip will make a big difference.”
