Talented Sutton students have revived the exterior of their school with a 12 foot piece of artwork.

When last year’s wintery weather took its toll on one of Lammas School’s exterior displays, the school enlisted the help of its talented students.

Pupils worked with street artist, Nathan Bainbridge, for a day to hand paint their designs onto the mural.

The artwork conveys what the school means to them.

Mr Bainbridge, artist, said: “I really enjoyed working with such a well behaved group.

“The kids are a credit to the school and I can see they have a bright future ahead of them.”

The PTA selected 15 students from both the primary and secondary years to work on the school’s outdoor mural.

The Sutton school said the goal of the project was to tell the world about Lammas in picture format.

Mr Bainbridge, Nottingham professional street artist, helped children to bring all the elements into one design which was then painted by the students on to three large panels.

The final design was installed on 27th October by members of the PTA and parent Mr Hardy.

The primary pupils who worked on the mural were, Alex Wright, Connie Harby, Callum Williams, Nina Vivers, Namita Suresh, Cassie Rye, Elisse Hardy and Elle-Mae Miller.

Senior pupils also added their creative flair to the mural. They were James Stevenson, Sia Suresh, Jessica Lilley, Ffion Rowntree, Georgia Allen, Scott Gibson and Roshni Sooriah.

The students will have an official unveiling ceremony on the first day back from the half term holidays.

Lammas is also celebrating the achievements of one of its year 13 pupils who has won first prize in the Independent Schools Association’s Midlands Region Art Competition.

Brogan Bowler took first prize with her entry entitled “Granddad” in the category of 3D art key stage 5.

Brogan’s work will go on to be submitted to the National Competition where it will be judged by an independent adjudicator

Pamela Sessions, head teacher at the school, said: “We are thrilled at Brogan’s achievement.

“She is studying for her art A Level now, and her work is an encouragement to all the students in the school.”
