Gallery: College of West Anglia artists praised by national examiner
A NATIONAL exam board has ranked Wisbech students top of league when it comes to art and design.
The College of West Anglia Isle Campus students’ daring creations for a catwalk demonstration were described as “the best seen this year” by the woman from the Edexcel board.
After the fashion show, which included punk fashion and demure designs from the 1950s, the examiner said: “It deserves to be seen by as many art teachers as possible.”
She also said that people interested in a career in art and design should have a look because it is an “exemplary example of what can be achieved with hard work, dedication and creativity”.
The examiner added: “It was a truly inspirational show.”
