News Senior School

Year 8 are discovering Embellished Architecture with Mr Taplin in their Art lessons.  No need for books or a day trip to get up close to breath-taking architecture though – we have it at Thornton in abundance!  

Students have been studying some of the beautiful large architectural features and the finer details of the school building – the best place for this being in Central Hall.  Using water pencils they have sketched and blended features including the grand arches, the columns, the cantilever staircase, iron radiator covers and the ceiling roses and cornicing, to name but a few!
