A SCHOOL opened its doors to the public to celebrate the creativity of students.

Steyning Grammar School hosted its Art, Technology and Photography Exhibition on June 12, allowing the local community to see the hard work of the budding artists.

The impressive exhibition featured work of 500 students from various departments including art, animation, graphics, electronic products, resistant materials, engineering and food technology.

Nick Wergan, headteacher at the school, said: "The breadth of creative outcomes from our students is remarkable, and testimony to their skill and the great support from our staff.

“Anyone attending will have been taken aback by the talent of young people today."

Amanda Duke, faculty leader for creative and performing arts at Steyning Grammar School, said: “People were amazed by the items on display, proving that our students’ positive and focused enthusiasm has brought remarkable outcomes.”

GCSE art students displayed their examination work entitled Order and/or Disorder.

The theme generated a lot of interest in water, landscape and the re-arrangement of normality.

A-level students also displayed their work, and have been successful in gaining places at Camberwell, Brighton, Chichester, Northbrook, Manchester Metropolitan, Reading and Northbrook Universities.

Many students have offers at a range of prestigious universities including joining degree courses in digital photography, architecture, animation and game design.
