A group of students from Court Fields have been attending the Sorrell Saturday Art Club at Somerset College. The Sorrell Foundation was set up in 1999 with the aim of inspiring creativity in young people and improving the quality of life through good design. The Saturday club aims to encourage creativity and careers in art and design and many club members go on to take a further education diploma, foundation or undergraduate courses in the arts.
The Court Fields students recently visited Somerset House in London to view an exhibition of their work and while there they were presented with certificates by Sir John and Lady Frances Sorrell.
Students: Josanna, Eliz, Ellie, Charley, Charlotte, Emily, Amber, Charlotte, Claire, Josie and Georgia
