A Level and GCSE students have celebrated the culmination of their courses at an impressive arthaus exhibition of their work.  REFINE brought together a stunning collection of Art, Photography and Technology work from around 250 students.

REFINE opened on Tuesday, 5th June giving students and their families a chance to view final pieces resulting from two years of passion and creativity.  The show encompassed a wide variety of media and techniques ranging from fine art painting, photography, mixed media, film and 3D work.

Presenting prizes for Art, Head of Art Ms Lumb led the tributes to students’ hard work.  “The skills, creativity and dedication are needed in huge amounts to gain these top grades, and I would like to thank all our students for their effort and commitment.”

Examined art and technology courses regularly achieve outstanding results at the school.  “Students from all technologies have attained very high marks at GCSE and several have gained full marks for their controlled assessments,” said Mr Horrocks, Head of Technology.  “The quality of their work is fantastic and clearly demonstrates the hard work that students have put into their studies.  Opportunities to attend extra sessions after school and special Saturday morning sessions have really paid off.”
