This series of photographs will develop their understanding of digital and darkroom photography and expand their skills in traditional and contemporary materials, techniques and technology.
We start with the digital image.
This year we visited historic Hever Castle in Kent. Hever is known for its stunning 13th century castle and surrounding landscaped grounds that host jousting, arts and crafts fairs and a range of children's activities.
This trip will now provide all the material needed for the students first projects in Fine Art, Textiles and Graphics.
Thank you Hever, for the memories!

As part of a recent Bite the Ballot project some BTEC L3 students have made animated Gifs for Bite the Ballot, a not for profit organisation that empowers young people to speak. All the work needed to be targeted to young people and to communicate the message that they need to be counted and make informed decisions at the ballot box.

Some made reference to the current political parties, while others used animation to invite young people to find out more.
There are many other reactions to this theme and project on our Flickr page here:

This is an amazing opportunity for our students to sample a range of pathways that could shape their futures and speak to the Universities they are thinking of applying to.
Coulsdon College's BTEC L3 Ext Upper year students have been bringing Christmas to the local community.
At the Rotary Club of Croydon's annual craft fair at Warlingham School they had the best pitch, front and centre, to sell their handmade Christmas cards, wrapping paper and tags.
The students made enough money to support the fair and their future end of year exhibition, plus made some valuable friends, with the whole fair giving them a standing ovation at the end.
Well done to all those involved!
