STUDENTS’ creative talents will be showcased at a special exhibition in Scarborough.

Work by GCSE and BTEC students from George Pindar Community Sports College will be on display at Woodend Creative Workspace in The Crescent from 6pm to 8.30pm on July 20 and the following day.

Paula Birch-Rowell, head of creative arts at the school, said: “It’s a chance to celebrate the students’ achievements and show their work to the public.

“They are also hoping to sell some of their work.”

The exhibition will features of variety of artwork including painting, prints and sculpture.

Mrs Birch-Rowell added: “I think the work is really exciting. We tend to personalise the course, so the students have been able to work on things they find particularly interesting.

“There is a great mixture of different types of work and everyone is really excited about it being on show.”

The students have all completed either a GCSE or BTEC qualification and are aged between 14 and 16 years old.

Some will now be going on to study art and design at either Scarborough Sixth Form College or at Yorkshire Coast College’s Westwood campus.

The exhibition is open to the public.
