25 A Level Business Students attended a visit to Munich over October half term. This included a visit to the BMW plant. The plant employs a workforce of around 9000 people and builds more than 900 cars and up to 1,400 engines a day. Students toured the museum and enjoyed learning about the history of the firm, as well as dreaming about some very interesting concept cars!
The group had tours of the Olympic Park and Tower and the Allianz Arena. The group were interested to hear how the Olympic Park has had to adapt it’s business strategy since FC Bayern Munchen moved to a new stadium, in order to be commercially viable. The students also visited the new stadium, the Allianz Arena. The €340 million construction has become one of the city’s most dynamic businesses and it was great to get a behind the scenes look at the stadium. Student even got to line up to the Champions league music and walk down the players tunnel!
Finally, the group spent some time in Munich city centre and visited the Viktualienmarkt: a traditional German market selling a wide variety of goods. The weather did its best to cut this visit short but the group persevered and enjoyed the various sights Munich city centre had to offer.
On the evening there will be refreshments available and we are asking that people arrive at 7pm for a 7.30pm prompt start in the 6th form centre.

Aspiring A level artists spend the weekend in Anglesey with renowned artists…
On the 9th – 12th November Dr Smith took 3 enthusiastic A level year 12 Art and Design students to the Conway Centre in Anglesey. The students, Katie Smith, Rowan Allen and Chloe Harrison worked intensely with artists in a workshop environment alongside other students and teachers from a range of schools, gaining inspiration from them. Students produced a body of work which will contribute to their A level coursework to potentially raise their attainment.
Students created the following during the weekend:
Sketches outdoors of Snowdonia Mountains and landscape
A1 Artist studies sheet with sketches
A0 large scale drawings with gravy browning, charcoal, emulsion and oil pastel
3D paper sculpture
Katie Smith said:
I’ve never worked at such a rapid speed before, I’ve definitely learnt and produced a lot!

At the end of each academic year we invite students to collect their artwork from the art department to take home over the summer. The only exception is for year 11 and year 13 students whose work is required by the exam board to be kept in school until October half term.
Key stage 3 students – If students do not collect their artwork by the date given it will be recycled of at the end of each academic year.
Key stage 4 and 5 students – If students do not collect their artwork by the October half term it will be recycled the following July (retained for 9 months).
Therefore it is imperative that students collect their work if they wish to keep it as soon as possible. If students are coming in to collect their work from their art department they need to give at least 1 working day’s notice so we can collate and prepare their work for collection.
