Mr Wilding’s Words Autumn 6
Claires Court Art staff host the ISA London West Art Exhibition each year in the Norden Farm barn, which makes a wonderful exhibition space for the art and design work of the 30+ schools in our region. Judging is completely independent, with the school invisible to the judges; the winners in each of the 20+ categories go forward to the ISA National Exhibition in Leeds in November.
We were delighted to gain three first places - Jake Ward’s Face portrait in the KS4 Art category, Rafe Storr’s KS4 sketchbook from Senior Boys, and a fantastic double in the KS5 Photography category for Zainab Saleem.

Year 9's Biology work creating models of specialised cells was completed this week, making use of the many and varied contents of the home kitchen cabinet and garages. Here’s one example of the human cell made using jelly, presumably edible?
This is an example of dual coding, one of the six strategies for effective learning promoted by the Learning Scientists, and regularly in use here at Claires Court.
