Aldershot News & Mail - - SCHOOLS -

STU­DENTS at Yate­ley School show­cased their creative tal­ent at a young de­sign­ers’ ex­hi­bi­tion.

GCSE and A level stu­dents in art, graph­ics, pho­tog­ra­phy, tech­nol­ogy, tex­tiles and food dis­played work in three-day, end-of-year show.

At the launch event at the school, on July 17, Bernard Cooper, county in­spec­tor for de­sign and tech­nol­ogy, gave a speech on the im­por­tance of de­sign ed­u­ca­tion and praised the school on the high stan­dard of work.

The stu­dents who pro­duced the best work in each sub­ject were pre­sented with awards by head­teacher Mark Jack­man with Mr Cooper pre­sent­ing the Yate­ley young de­signer of the year award.

The win­ner was Ni­cholas Mor­gan, in Year 13, for his A level graph­ics project.

Graph­ics teacher Dar­ren Evans said: “Nick is a tal­ented, creative and ex­cep­tion­ally hard­work­ing stu­dent who

strives to excel con­tin­u­ally him­self.

“He has shown ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment through­out the graph­ics course and his cre­ativ­ity and flair has en­abled him to achieve an A* for his A2 course­work.

“Nick demon­strates a great abil­ity to work with a range of ma­te­rial and tech­niques both ac­cu­rately and pre­cisely as well as com­bin­ing ma­te­ri­als in a unique way.

“Nick’s A2 piece, The Yacht, has been se­lected for the best in show award due to the at- ten­tion to de­tail and per­se­ver­ance for per­fec­tion.”

Mr Mor­gan will be go­ing to Coven­try Univer­sity to study for a de­gree in trans­port de­sign.

The show, in its seventh year, was at­tended by many vis­i­tors, in­clud­ing gov­er­nors, stu­dents, fam­ily and friends as well as the mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was de­scribed as a ‘huge suc­cess and a cel­e­bra­tion’ of the creative achieve­ment of stu­dents at Yate­ley School.
