Visual Arts

As well as running a wide range of visits and clubs, the Art and Photography department offer a fantastic range of enrichment activities. Every year, Art and Photography students enter the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Competition, with a chance to have their work displayed here. Last year, Emily Young, one of Thomas Hardye’s Year 13 photography students was selected to have her work displayed over 2000 other entries. ┬áThe Photography department are currently collaborating with Age UK, to put together a calendar, “Growing Old Disgracefully”, which they plan to sell to raise money for the charity. As well as this, the Art and Photography department have links with renowned artists, photographers and illustrators. Last year Marc Wilson, Paul Cleden and Tim Warnes ran workshops for our students.
