ART students at Redland High School have been celebrating after being awarded the Schools’ Prize at the annual Senior Schools’ Art Exhibition, held at Bristol Cathedral.

The award was presented to representatives of the school by the Lady Mayoress at the Prize Giving Event yesterday evening.

The exhibition is organised by the Bristol Savages, a society founded by artists in 1904, concerned with the pursuit of the fine arts, music, poetry and other performing arts.

As well as winning the prize, individual pupils from Redland High were also recognised for their excellent standard of work.

Tegan Smith and Chloe Chan were both commended while Mehreen Saddique’s painting of a crab was described by judges as a "tour de force".

Caroline Bateson, headmistress at Redland High School, said: "I am delighted that our art department has had such success at the exhibition. Our students produce an exceptionally high standard of work, which is always much admired by visitors to the School, and I am very pleased that this has been recognised."
