Three of the school’s top artists have had their artwork displayed at the Lowry in Salford as part of Living Edge magazine’s school arts competition.
Rebecca Hosfield (U14s category), Gwen Harris (U16s) and Jessica Hadfield (U18s) all had their work hung in the gallery which was then judged by some of the north-west’s leading artists, with Jessica’s entry being chosen as a runner-up in her category.
Mr Richard Davies, the head of Art, said:
This year saw a record number of entries from many of the best schools from across the north-west, and so the fact that all three of our entrants were accepted was very pleasing.
While Rebecca and Gwen can be very pleased with their achievement, Jessica deserves particular congratulations as she was runner-up in the senior category with her large abstract painting.
The school has a rich history in the competition with Sophie Watson being chosen as a winner in 2010, and Jenny McLoughlin, Ellie Broster and Simon Howard all having their work highly commended in recent years.
This year’s entries are all available to view below.
