BUDDING Scarborough artists impressed judges at a local art festival, coming away with individual accolades and contributing to an overall award for their college.

Students from Scarborough Sixth Form College also made their mark at the Old Boatyard Art Festival.

The college were asked to enter a maximum of four students and chose AS Level students Lucy Sayers, 16, and Chloe Baldwin, 17, and A2 Level students Philip Jordan, and, Ruth Smith, both 18 years old, to represent the establishment.

Jason Saunby, acting head of art praised everyone involved and those who helped the college come out tops in the Best School or College category.

He said: “The college is very pleased and proud that our students did so well at the festival and I hope our students are very proud of themselves.

“Overall Scarborough Sixth Form College won Best School or College and Chloe Baldwin came first and Lucy Sayers third in the 16-18 years age group - well done to everyone who took part!

“These students are a credit to our college and the secondary schools they came from in September. They are a small example of the hardworking, talented students that we have the pleasure of working alongside at the Sixth Form College.”
