GCSE Showcase Is A Work Of Art

Over 150 stunning pieces of artwork went on show for visitors to our annual GCSE Art Showcase evening.

A total of 58 former students’ portfolios were displayed as our atrium was transformed into an art gallery for the evening, with the artists and their families invited to attend the exclusive event.  The work of students from two of our sister schools within the United Learning Greater Manchester Cluster – William Hulme’s Grammar School and Manchester Academy – were also on display.

Visitors had the opportunity to admire a wide range of artwork, from paintings and drawings to 3D pieces and sculptures. The department achieved a record number of Grade 9s when students collected their results in August.

Guests were treated to a buffet and refreshments on the night, while prizes of art sets were also given out to returning students to recognise everything from ‘skill and technique’ to ‘most progress’ and ‘outstanding work’.

Ms Stirling, head of Art and Design Technology, said: “We had a fantastic evening and it was a wonderful experience to welcome proud parents and teachers to appreciate the hard work and dedication that went into an exceptional collection of artwork.

“Our showcase was the finest example of what can be achieved through dedication and a passion for Art, and we can’t wait to see what our current Year 11 produce in their final year at Stockport Academy – we have high expectations for what is a very talented group of students.”
