    Eighteen students from Upton Court Grammar School visited an anatomy exhibition and two art galleries in Amsterdam on Wednesday 15 March 2018. This was to support the year 9 and 10 students’ learning of GCSE Biology and Art.

    The first point of call was Bodyworlds in the Damrak area of central Amsterdam, where students studied human anatomy at an exposition of plastinated human bodies and tissue specimens; this method of preservation involves adding polymers to human tissue developed by Professor Gunther Von Hagens for enhancing the learning experience.

    To support the Art curriculum, the school party visited the Stedelijk Museum of contemporary art and the Van Gogh art gallery, where students observed classic paintings of the renowned artist.
