A west Suffolk school’s art exhibition – which showcases the work of both GCSE and A-level students – has been declared a success.
The annual Thomas Gainsborough School (TGS) exhibition has become an end-of-year celebration ahead of the students receiving their exam results next month.
The Great Cornard school’s head of art, Ed Clark, paid tribute to the work ethic of pupils.
“I would like to congratulate all of the students for their work – their work ethic and depth of experimentation is some of the best I have ever seen,” he said.
“This has been reflected by the feedback we have received from assessors and the fact that TGS is one of the few Platinum Artsmark schools in the region.”
One of the exhibitors, Jessica Braybrook, 16, from Sudbury, said: “This is the first time my work has ever been in an exhibition and it is great to have other people view it.
“I have really enjoyed working on this project and I am looking forward to returning to TGS for my A-levels.”
One of the works exhibited by Ismay Hathaway, 16, from Boxford, was a portrait of her dad, Andrew.
She said: “Art is my favourite subject and it is very exciting to have my work exhibited in school. I feel very proud.”
Her dad, who attended Thursday night’s exhibition, added: “It is a bit strange to see myself on the wall, but it is very good.”
