Co-Curricular Calling – GCSE Science Trip and Art Scholar Workshop


Over seventy budding GCSE Scientists headed to London on Monday for a stimulating Science in Action conference which featured a fascinating talk by Professor Robert Winston on the ‘Wonder of Life’ and ethical issues surrounding embryos.  A Winter Wonderland at the Devil’s Punchbowl was the inspiration for our intrepid art scholars who were privileged to work with Landscape artist Mark Spray.  He explained to the girls how important it is to embrace the physicality and sounds of a landscape before attempting to capture its essence on canvas and to use materials within it, such as twigs and leaves to apply paint and chalk.
