Pupils’ animations highly commended in UK schools competition

Highly commended Animation 11 competition pupils

Animation club’s Luke O’Donoghue, Robert Clarke and Christian Anderson have all been highly commended in this year’s UK schools computer animation competition, hosted by the University of Manchester.

Pupils began working on their animations back in November with nominations for Biology in the Body (According to Dan) and FaceJournal following in May.

The competition received over 1,200 entries from across the UK and so our pupils can be very proud to win two of just 45 prizes on offer.

At the ceremony, Luke, Robert and Christian were each awarded £40 in Amazon gift vouchers and were invited to a VIP lunch at Manchester Museum, before an afternoon of activities including an inspirational talk on innovative game design and animation.
