The Hewett School puts on an arty exhibition

Colourful creations made of everything from wool to metal stood alongside a striking array of images as one Norwich school displayed its students' artistic talents.

The Hewett School kicked off its art, photography and design exhibition this week with an evening showing around 2,000 pieces of work from pupils from year 11 up to year 13.

More than a hundred parents, friends and members of public turned up for Tuesday's launch, with prizes also being handed out for some of the favourites.

Deane Money, head of arts and technology, said: 'We hold this because it gives the students a chance to showcase their work, and for A level students in particular the opportunity to learn about showing their works in public.'

The exhibition is held yearly and took place over two floors in the school, with the work of more than 200 fine art and photography students undertaking their GCSEs, AS and A levels on display. This included both works hung up for display and individual portfolios.

Mr Money added: 'The students were both very excited and nervous as they were putting themselves out there. However, we got so much good feedback from the public it should be really good for their confidence.'

The work will remain on display in the school for the next two weeks.
