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 Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Ben Dowling, The Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Mrs Pamela Bryant and her Mayoress, Councillor Mrs Louise Clubley, the Mayor of Havant, Councillor Diana Patrick and Chair of The Arts Society, Portsea Island, Mr Martin Hunt.
‘Every year the Art and Design exhibition is a great opportunity to showcase and celebrate the hard work of the GCSE and A level students,’ said Emma Noble, Teacher of Art. ‘The breadth of skills demonstrated and the individual creative responses from each student is both impressive and mature.’
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.’
The Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth said:
‘It was wonderful to see how high the quality of work is at the High School. It’s clear the girls work extremely hard.’
