Slough Grammar School celebrated the talents of its Art and Photography students on Monday, in their annual exhibition attended by staff, students and members of the community. Works from students at GCSE and A level were exhibited alongside collaborations with Marish Primary School, SEGRO, and Creative Partnership as well as a project working with members of the local community.
Slough Grammar School, which will be known as Upton Court Grammar School from September 2013, is expanding its post-16 arts portfolio by launching A Levels in Photography and Media Studies to give students with a flair for creativity to develop their skills further.
Slough Grammar School Principal Mercedes Hernandez Estrada said “I firmly believe that true intelligence is more than academic ability. Slough Grammar School is committed to providing opportunities to develop intelligences that are physical, aesthetic, emotional, moral and spiritual. This is why it has been wonderful to see art work in the exhibition and so many young people excelling at Art.
