Arts College

As well as all the usual exhibitions and visits to cultural locations this year we have been very busy working with the Lyme Regis museum on two film making projects.

Year 7 always visit the museum in January as part of their People and Places course and although the artefacts and displays are fantastic the actual physical space is incredibly cramped for large groups of students. So we were all delighted to hear that the Museum had been granted Heritage lottery funding to build a new extension to house an educational learning space for groups of 30 visiting students.

As part of this project Year 7 have been heavily involved in making an animation film of the story of the Bindon landslip of 1839 with the help of Matthew Dean a professional animator. Whereas the 6th form A level Geography and Photography students worked with professional director Justin Owen to create a documentary questioning whether erosion is a good or a bad thing for Lyme Regis.

Both films will be shown in a Gala performance in November and will be used as part of the museums resource for school groups.
