On the 17th and 18th of November all Year 10 GCSE Art & Design students had the opportunity to spend a day with a professional artist and to learn and experiment whilst still in school.

The aim of the day was for the students to hear what it is like to run your own business; how they have become artists; how to attract commissions; how artists make a living.  During the days both students, and staff, learned new techniques for personal work.

The artists are provided by DAISI (Devon Arts in Schools Initiative) and are all well known local working artists.  There were three artists and students chose in which medium they would like to work: Caricature, Printmaking or 3D.


Year 10 Art Enterprise Workshops

Stan Toohey is an Australian caricature artist who now lives in England. He makes a living from teaching;  live caricature work (wedding fairs etc); studio commissions and book illustration. The students learnt the techniques of how to achieve a likeness when producing a caricature and then did their own.

Simon Ripley is the head of the ‘Double Elephant Print Shop’ in Exeter and those students who chose to do printmaking worked with him for the day. They produced a variety of prints using different techniques such as Monoprint, Collograph, and Dry point Etching.

James Lake is a sculptor who uses the medium of cardboard to create large scale sculptural pieces. His work is based on the themes of humanity and strength. Those students who chose to work with James for the day produced 3D head using new techniques in cardboard.

The students will include the work that they produced in their coursework for GCSE Art. In addition, students now have a range of new techniques to use and apply when developing their ideas towards the critical final piece and they have spoken and worked with practising artistes which will help them understand the real art world beyond College.

Fantastic letter of praise from visiting artist

Stan Tooey, the caricature artist,  who has worked in many schools across the world wrote the the College reflecting on his experience working with our students.


"I am writing to express my heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to conduct my Caricature/Cartoon workshops at your wonderful school over the past two days.

I have taught in various colleges and schools in both hemispheres over the years, but I can honestly say that my experience of facilitating my sessions at Exmouth Community College was one that stands alone.

The high quality of the ECC teaching is evident in the students' proficiency, competence and good manners whilst engaging in set tasks. They also demonstrated intelligent debate and enquiry plus mind-full consideration of the session content.

The ECC art department possesses a creative pulse that only comes about with the combined talents, commitment and passion of its facilitators. 

Your personal initiative of employing DAISI artists for short projects is testament to your commitment of providing the highest quality education for your charges as possible.

Congratulations on a job well done.

Warm regards,

Stan Toohey

Congratulations to all the students and staff involved!

To mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War students at Exmouth Community College attended special assemblies and participated in an Act of Remembrance.   The assemblies were planned in conjunction with representatives from the Royal British Legion who also provided a model of a First World War trench, memorabilia and displays to help students reflect on life in 1914.

The assemblies were held for all Year Groups and students were extremely respectful and attentive.  They watched the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal song ‘No man’s land’, heard poems written by Year Seven students and listened to extracts from war diaries and letters sent in by families of those who had fought in the war.  The assemblies ended with students standing in silence to hear the traditional words of exhortation which were followed by the Last Post.

A big thank you to Jo Louis, Amanda and Lucy at LED’s ‘Exmouth Tennis and Fitness’ who gave up two full days to interview all of our year 13 BTEC sport students. This gave the students valuable experience and feedback regarding potential employment and future careers in the sport and leisure industry.
