Fantastic Artwork by year 10 students

Our tribute to Pablo Picasso’s GUERNICA

Probably Picasso’s most famous work, Guernica is certainly the his most powerful political statement, painted as an immediate reaction to the Nazi’s devastating casual bombing practice on the Basque town of Guernica.
Guernica shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon individuals, particularly innocent civilians. This work has gained a monumental status, becoming a perpetual reminder of the tragedies of war, an anti-war symbol, and an embodiment of peace.

Mrs Southworth commented, that the year 10 art students spent time looking and discussing the symbolism in the work, and put together this fantastic version. We have shown the shattered lives, death and hopelessness of war.
But perhaps one ray of light brings hope from this atrocity, in the form of the lightbulb and its rays.
Our version of Guernica is dedicated to all those who have lost their lives during conflicts and wars.
Pictured is the original and our version.

Latest Guild talk

This week we welcomed Harriet Finney to the school for a career talk to Year 9. Harriet is the Director of External Affairs for the British Film Institute and gave great advice to the students about the wide variety of employment opportunities there are in the British Film Industry.

She also gave excellent general advice to the students as they start to form their own ideas about their future career aspirations. Many thanks to Harriet for taking the time to visit us and to Speakers for Schools who were fundamental in helping arrange the event.

We really appreciate your support.
