    On Thursday the 6th of July 90 Years 9 and 10 Media Studies and Design Technology students went to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios.

    The students got to experience the magic behind the movies and see where the franchise really began and discovered how the set and props were created. They also got a chance to see the original costumes and marvel at the creature workshop. Some students also made the most of the CGI and special effects experiences on offer, such as flying a broomstick in front of a green screen or having a drink with Hagrid in the optical illusion exhibit.

  • Yr 8 Students Getting Creative With Clay

    The new project has them experimenting with the way to impress, using natural items such as leaves or stones, or apply more clay to create texture.
