“All pupils engaged with the Curious Beasts exhibition which encouraged pupils to explore human curiosity about the animal world through the beautiful and strange imagery found in prints of the 15th to the early 19th centuries from the British Museum’s collection.

“The children gained so much from this inspiring arts experience and were also able to design and create their own poly prints. We are so very grateful to RDFAS for their donation. The experience has really helped us to further raise the profile of arts in our school.”
