The HOPE project is a collaborative project with all three TEAM Education schools, Stubbin Wood School, Model Village Primary School, Whaley Thorns Primary School and all local churches.

The project is based on hope and centres around looking forward to returning to normal life after COVID-19.

Each student from all schools was asked to complete a piece of art work based on their own hope, dreams and desires.

“I approached Reverend John Draycott, and Vicar Karen Bradley and, with their kind support, the final art installations will be displayed in Holy Trinity, Holy Cross, St Luke’s and St Michael’s.”
