Art students receive honours from Cowbridge Arts Group


After another successful Exhibition at the Old Hall titled ‘Pursuing Excellence’, which this year showcased artwork by our talented Year 12 students. It was judged once again by representatives of the Cowbridge Arts Group at their annual prize giving.

This year’s winners were:Callum Howell and James O’Hare, joint 1st prize, and Millie Van Emden 2nd prize. Our students were thrilled to receive their cash prizes. Paige Williams also received a Highly Commended.

Staff and visitors to the exhibition at the Old Hall were especially impressed with the outstanding quality of this year’s artwork, so it seems this exhibition’s title has proved to be correct.

Mrs. Clare Parry, Head of Art at Cowbridge School is delighted with the links forged between the school, Cowbridge Arts Group, Old Hall Adult Education and the local Community as it gives our students a unique opportunity to exhibit their work outside school.

Unfortunately our black A5 bound comment book with black ribbon, which contains many years of written commendations from public, staff and past students and therefore has great sentimental value, has been mislaid.If anyone has come across our book, please return it to either Cowbridge Comprehensive School Art Department or back to the Old Hall. Thank you.
