I just wanted to offer my feedback from a lovely Open Day I attended with my yr 5 daughter this morning. We received a warm welcome and and left feeling inspired and totally impressed with Dean Academy. The two students who showed us around were very professional and their enthusiasm for their school was infectious. If my daughter gave a future student a tour of that level one day I would be very proud of her. (Prospective parent).

Sculpture TripThe Dean Academy Sculpture Trail

Students of Art and Design at The Dean Academy have spent a day studying and visiting local sculptures in Gloucester and the Forest of Dean as part of their Btec course.

They visited the exhibition of contemporary sculpture at Gloucester Cathedral which opened to the public last month and features works of art by 61 sculptors, many of them internationally acclaimed artists. The trip also took them on the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail.

Mrs Charles, teacher of Art, Design and Production at the academy said “The visit was for our students to experience sculptures in different settings.  They have started a site-specific sculpture project to design and produce.  Each sculpture will be commissioned by a client – who will be a senior teacher or Director of Faculty at the academy.  We envisage that a selection of sculptures will be created and sited around the school grounds.”

Holly-Mae Cotterell, a year 11 student at the academy commented “The trip has inspired me to experiment with different materials. We saw sculptures made from bronze, wood, papier mache and fish bones. I really enjoyed the Sculpture Trail, seeing art surrounded by nature. The artists wanted to make their art big where we live and I find that amazing and inspiring.”
