On Tuesday the 6th of February, GCSE Art pupils visited the Tate Britain Art Gallery in Westminster, London.

We took a ‘Walk Through British Art’ to explore art works from 1545 to the present day. We also viewed the immense and impressive Turner Collection and enjoyed various other areas such as the Antony Gormley room, Henry Moore and William Blake rooms.

One highlight was a bright yellow room housing odd conceptual pieces which can only be described as resembling the female reproductive system. I was particularly inspired by Bernard Cohen’s lively and colourful paintings.

It was a tiring but very enjoyable day and the girls collected some valuable first-hand research for both their coursework and their Externally Set Assignments. I look forward to seeing the resulting Art work!
