The Art Department at West Buckland continues to go from strength to strength and two of our A level Art students have recently received unconditional offers to further their artistic careers from their chosen universities.
Year 13’s Scarlet Tang has received no less than two unconditional offers to read Animation from Falmouth College and Plymouth University, while Paige Porritt has had an unconditional offer to read Fine Art from the University of Gloucester.
Most impressive has been the feedback to their applications. A letter received by Paige said, “ I thought your portfolio was outstanding; I loved the range of media and your natural tendency to experiment and explore. Some of your work shows a maturity beyond your years.”
Head of Art, Cameron Main, is delighted with his students’ achievements. “I am so proud and pleased for both Paige and Scarlet not only for their success but the praise they have received for their portfolios. The maturity of their ideas and their individuality really shone out.”
Both A-level and GCSE students are working hard to complete their final exam portfolios and are making the most of the department’s ‘open door’ policy which enables them to use any free time to come in and work on their pieces.
