Calling everyone in Year 9

Thinking of doing Art at GCSE or in the 6th form? This blog will give you a good idea of what our students get up to. Take a look at their work and ideas. You will probably recognise some of them.
If parents would like further advice on the courses we offer the Art teachers can be contacted on rogercharles@chellaston.derby.sch.uk or see you on Options Evening.
For students - please post a comment directly on to the blog and tell us what your favourite work is - add your name and your views will be published - (because comments are moderated they may not show up immediately).


  1. I like the piece of work of the fruit because they have put alot of shading and detail in to it,and there are good different shades of red.
