Subject matter as hard-hitting as the Holocaust and as unusual as nightclub design features in Redden Court School’s new exhibition.
The art and design show of students’ and teachers’ work was unveiled at a ceremony on July 10, attended by between 300 and 400 people.
Much of the work has been created as part of students’ GCSE projects, including a textile display.
The exhibition, which will run until the end of term, includes a Holocaust memorial display and the work of students who have been studying nightclub design.
Canapés made by GCSE food students were served at the reception.
