Year 9s create fantastic ‘Field’ installation (By Zoe, 14)

The Year 9 students at The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, Somerset have contributed to an art installation in school, inspired by British sculptor Anthony Gormley’s ‘field’ sculptures.

Each student was given a piece of clay which then had to be shaped into a human form that represented something they like. These sculptures were then fired in the kiln and placed outside for everyone to admire.

Mrs O’Brien, teacher at TKASA, said that “the aim of this installation is to represent the school community showing the individual characters of our students and capturing a moment in time”.


This was a fantastic opportunity for all of the Year 9 students and was a project that gave students a chance to express themselves.

Mrs O’Brien also said “we hope to continue this project to build up our collection of figures and create a larger representation of TKASA”.
