Upper Sixth History of Art pupils travelled to Paris at the beginning of the Easter holiday to see for themselves the numerous paintings, sculptures and buildings they have been studying on their Pre-U course.

They visited the Louvre, D’Orsay and Picasso museums, as well as the Pompidou Centre and the Orangerie to take in the many magnificent art works there that stimulate the mind, beguile the senses and send spirits soaring.

They also spent time at Chartres Cathedral – one of the most authentic and complete works of religious architecture of the early 13th century, Château de Malmaison and the Villa Savoye. The trip was a busy few days crammed full with culture and learning – exhausting, but productive.
