Yacht project wins best design prize
Students at Yateley School had their work featured in a design exhibition with Year 13 pupil Nick Morgan taking the top accolade
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.
