Our students at Atkinson have gained over 160 Koestler Awards and certificates last year, through the Atkinson School. These were given to 28 individual students and we had seven pieces of our students’ work on display in the main exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

This year, there were over 8,500 entries and there are only 190 artworks chosen for the exhibition so to have seven pieces of art selected from one centre is an outstanding achievement. 

Here are some examples of the amazing artwork created by young people at Atkinson this year, as part of their art curriculum content.
