To support our GCSE Art students in making informed and relevant choices that could influence their careers and degree choices we arranged for the first time a visit to the impressive Excel Centre. The Exhibition Centre London, commonly referred to as just the ExCeL, is an exhibition and international convention complex in the east of the capital. Nestled right between London City Airport and Canary Wharf, it is an immense structure taking up an amazing 100-acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock. The atmosphere was buzzing and swarming with enthusiastic young students from colleges across the country. Our students collected a huge amount of reference materials and had a thoroughly enjoyable and highly informative and successful day speaking to university representatives and practicing professionals from a wide variety of fields across the creative industries.
