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.
Physiotherapist to the England football team, Gary Lewin, who is a patron of the school, gave a speech praising those involved for their hard work.
Head of art, Meg Ryan, came up with the idea for the exhibition as part of a long-term “rainbow nation” project celebrating the school’s cultural diversity.
