YEAR 11 students at Northease Manor School near Lewes exhibited their Art, Photography and Textiles GCSE work.

The work remained on display to prospective parents at the Northease Manor Open Day on Wednesday.

The exhibition celebrates two years of hard work and the development of individual students’ artistic styles and skills.

The art work on display encompasses the full range of materials and processes in art, photography and textiles.

These include lino printing, ceramics, felt-making and appliqué, as well as digital and manual photo editing and manipulation.

Claire Farmer, Head of Northease Manor, said she has been ‘blown away by the professionalism of the work.’

She said: “This is a testament to the students and the fabulous staff team who have worked with them tirelessly to support them in achieving the best possible outcomes.

“I couldn’t be more proud.”

Northease Manor School is a co-educational independent day and weekly boarding school for students primarily with autism and/or dyslexia.

Ms Farmer said: “With specialist staff and resources, we offer high quality teaching, fully integrated occupational, speech and language therapy (in partnership with a leading NHS Trust) and pastoral support to a very high standard.

“We offer weekly boarding from Sunday evening to Friday evening, and we can usually accommodate flexi boarders either on the same night each week or on an ad hoc basis.

“Northease is a special school but not necessarily the way you would think of one.

“We’re special because our students are really happy, really well cared for, really known as individuals, and really nurtured to become more confident and more successful than they (or probably you) would ever have thought possible.”
