Extra-curricular Activities and Trips
Every day sees a different activity offered, from textiles and handicraft, ceramics, to Eco art and Warhammer club (building and painting battle landscapes).
In the last two years the B Block visited a variety of sculpture parks e.g. Henry Moore, Hertfordshire, and The New Art Centre at Roche Court, where the work observed is used to inspire the pupil’s own project work.
With the amazing wonders at the Ashmolean and Natural History Museum, we also use the amazing galleries and museums on our doorstep, and visit when the project work dictates. Most recently the Post Exam Group visited the Story Museum and Modern Art Oxford to inspire their artwork.
In the Upper School we also run a Potential Art Scholars group where the most talented artists are offered extra sessions with the aim of building a portfolio to take to their senior school on the Scholarship day. In the last few years we have won awards to the following senior schools – Marlborough, Headington, Abingdon, MCS, Rugby, Lancing College, Shrewsbury, Bryanston, Millfield, Blundell’s and Radley.
