PUPILS with an eye for a picture have been showcasing their creative side at an exhibition.

Catcote School Business and Enterprise College, in Hartlepool, hosted its first photo exhibition to highlight the work of 24 creative arts and media students.

The teenagers, aged between 14 and 19, are the first to complete the new course and staff have been impressed with their efforts.

The exhibition, entitled Something New, featured 48 photographs, 24 frames of felt and a large felt creation of Saltburn Pier.

Staff have been so impressed with the range and quality of work they are hoping to create a permanent exhibition space for future displays.

Lisa Greig, assistant headteacher at the school, said: “This year we have started a new creative arts and media course as an option for our 14 to 19-year-old students.

“In total, 24 students have taken part and we wanted to create an exhibition to showcase their work.

“The exhibition was attended by school governors and local authority representatives and they were all impressed with the standard on show.

“As part of the course we have been out on trips to Saltburn, which is featured heavily in the work.

“I am very proud of all the students and the school is looking to create a permanent gallery space.”

The exhibition was held at the school in Catcote Road, Hartlepool.
