Students at Spratton Hall from ages 4 to 13 worked together in a whole-school project to create a piece of artwork for The David Shepherd Foundation Global Art Competition.

With the brief ‘Our Precious Planet’ pupils came up with the idea of giant jewellery boxes in the shape of a giraffe, elephant and turtle containing drawers which were then filled either with small ceramic creatures made in art classes or poems that they had written on the theme. 

Successfully shortlisted out of 100’s of entries from all around the world, a number of pupils and staff took the animals to the Natural History Museum for the presentation and judging.

For the third year running Spratton Hall placed in the top three and for the second year running were awarded the David Shepherd Personal Choice Award for the elephant.

Anyone wanting to see the award-winning art can come along to the school’s open morning on Friday May 12 between 10am and noon.
