Black History Month 2017

In celebration of Black History Month our key stage three art students created a series of posters to celebrate the culture, history and achievements of black and ethnic minority communities. All students were given two lessons to create a poster during the month of October and the strongest posters from each year group would win a prize.

The outcomes this year were fantastic and it was very difficult to select a winner from each year group. Our students showed real independence & creativity, demonstrating our school key values.

Students in A2 Art went on a trip to the Tate Modern to see the exhibition The World Goes Pop. The exhibition reveals how pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive International language of protest.
