Three year 8 students from Samuel Ward Academy have had their artwork selected to be exhibited for the National Open Art Children's Competition. The NOACC engages thousands of schools around the UK and Ireland and this year, Samuel Ward Academy had over 40 entries from KS3 students, representing a fantastic range of interests, skills and abilities. We were overwhelmed with pride hear the news that three of our students' entries were selected to be exhibited at Oxmarket centre of the Arts Chichester, 5th - 6th December 2017. George Hollyhead, Hannah Beetson and Harry Merrills are considered by the judges to be amongst "the UK and Ireland's most promising young artists", and their innovation creativity did us proud.
