ARTISTIC pupils at Northleigh House School are showcasing their work.

The Hatton-based school will transform its barn – which is used as a sports and drama centre – into a gallery for an exhibition of A Level and GSCE artwork and photography.

After hearing increasingly common stories about children committing suicide due to bullying, husband and wife team Fred and Vivian Morgan decided to transform their ten-bedroom home into a school for victims in 2012.

The school now has 20 pupils, aged 11 to 17-years, and relies on donations to operate.

Teacher Scarlett Shellis said: “Photography and art is a therapeutic outlet for our students who have suffered an awful time prior to attending Northleigh House School. We want to celebrate their creativity and confidence to create such beautiful work.”

The exhibit is open to all from noon to 3pm on Saturday June 18 at the Five Ways Road school.
