Science the Theme for New Build Artwork

Gifted and talented students are helping to construct a giant periodic table that will take pride of place in the entrance to the new build.

The group have been working with two professional artists to produce designs to represent the elements in a project that is using art to reflect the Academy's science specialism.

It started with a visit from Dr Samantha Tang from the University of Nottingham who helped students to explore some of elements through experiments.

This term's ICU days were used to continue their research of elements and then film a short presentation on their findings. They had to come up with an image that represents their chosen elements, which will then be produced in the form of a print or photograph.

Artists Belinda Holden and Vanessa Dell of HoldenDell Projects, who are working with Willmott Dixon on artwork for the new building, are working alongside art teacher and lead-coordinator Emma Brooks and science teachers Melanie Jolliffe and Daniel Healey.

The design of the remaining elements will be split across the rest of the school and will include teachers' designs.

We look forward to seeing the end result.
