Art trips to the British Museum and Tate Britain for years 9, 10 and 11

Just before half term, Years 9, 10 and 11 went on two visits to galleries to support their "Natural Forms" topic within their Art and Design GCSE courses.  Students visited the British Museum and the Tate Britain, with some lovely sketches of paintings and sculptures being produced whilst on the trips.  Students also wrote valuable feedback for the trips as well, reflecting on their days.
