Portsmouth High School students proudly displayed their work at the annual Art and Design Technology exhibition this week. Parents and governors joined VIP guests including the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Lee Mason, Mayor and Mayoress of Havant, Councillor Peter Wade and Mrs Janet Wade and Deputy Mayor of Gosport, Councillor Kathleen Jones and her consort Mr Kevin Jones.
‘The Art and Design exhibition is always a highlight on the school calendar,’ said Head of Art, Mrs Amelia Brooks. ‘It is a joy to see the culmination of the work from students from GCSE and A level years. Their work shows great maturity and depth.’
Assistant Head of Portsmouth High School and Head of Design Technology, Mr Graeme Field, added:
‘The girls have worked so hard and it is lovely that all their pieces can be appreciated at an exhibition such as this. For many, it is a finale of two year’s work for
GCSEs and A Levels. Each piece is so unique and reflects much of the personality of the girls.’
‘There has been an amazing variety of art work on show,’ said Councillor Kathleen Jones. ‘There is obviously much talent amongst the girls here and it has been a wonderful evening.’
The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth added:
‘It has been a real pleasure to come to the exhibition this evening and to be able to appreciate the hard work and talent of these young women.’
