Haverhill students show off their artistic flare in four-day exhibition




An exhibition showcasing the artistic talents of students across Haverhill has been hailed a success.

Young artists from the town’s two upper schools – Samuel Ward and Castle Manor academies - joined forces with students from Haverhill Community Sixth Form to exhibit their work to the public over four days.

It is believed to be the first time students from across Haverhill have teamed up to showcase their work in an art exhibition, which was held at the offices of Unity Schools Partnership in Park Road.

Neil Williams, head of art at Samuel Ward Academy, said: "This was a great opportunity to collaborate with other schools and the Unity Schools Partnership and we are delighted with how it went.

“We wanted to give students across Haverhill the chance to exhibit their excellent work in a space away from their individual schools and we received some great feedback.

“What was particularly evident was the incredible difference between the art on show and how they all told their own story.

“The head office of the trust offers a great space and we hope to have more exhibitions, possibly involving primary schools in and around the town, in the future.”
