Some of our students have been taking part in a sketch of the week activity. The students are given a new picture each Wednesday to sketch/ paint. Take a look at some of the incredible work our students have produced!

For those of you travelling by public transport; you will need to wear a face covering unless you have a medical reason not to. Take a look at the advice and guidance above on wearing a face covering. Do remember, you may need a face covering for travelling on the bus to college in September if advice from the government is still the same.
As well as completing some work at home that has been set by tutors; some of our students have completed some independent projects! This lovely piece of art work was created by one of our students, Emily Hislopp. Well done Emily!
