On the final Friday of last term, Art Teacher, Mrs Parsons and Art Scholar, Isabelle S in Year 9, went along to the Surrey Wildlife Trust’s ‘Wild Surrey’ Art and Photography Exhibition to which we had submitted some entries, including a painting by Isabelle. We were delighted when she was awarded the Under 18’s category prize for ‘Best Painting’ for her ‘Bluebell Badger’ piece seen in the background of this photograph. In addition to the accolade of winning the award, Izzy was given £100.00 prize money. A fantastic achievement!
