London Trip to the Royal Academy of Arts

Recently Mr. Armitage, Head of Art, led a Sixth Form trip to the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

The trip was most fortunate to be welcomed personally by Professor Brian Griffiths from the Royal Academy of Arts  who introduced the pupils and staff to the Academy's latest exhibition Painting the Modern Garden from Monet to Matisse

By reciprocal arrangement Professor Griffiths will be kindly visiting Birkdale's art studio in March of this year when he will travel up from London to give one to one tuition to our students. 

Other highlights of this trip included visits to The National Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and the British Museum. Pupils and staff also attended the acclaimed West End show Wicked.
