Y10 Online portfolios

Year 10 students have moved away from making their art books on paper and have now been making all their research pages and photography responses online instead.

We have reduced our carbon footprint!

Here are some examples of their wonderful portfolios…

Please do send in photos of your creations to the school art department.
