Key Stage 3 Students Aspire, Bee-lieve and Achieve ( Published: 23/06/2018)

Students in Years 7 and 8 were left buzzing after they completed work on our very own Whalley Range Bee, which was created as part of Bee in the City’s Inspiring Learning Programme.

Whalley Range student’s entry into Bee in the City’s Inspiring Learning Programme.

Schools, colleges and youth groups across Manchester have been taking part in the Inspiring Learning Programme, which will see 130 bee sculptures, including 80+ individually designed giant bee sculptures crafted by regional professional and emerging artists, form a stunning public art trail through the city of Manchester this summer. Inclusive and imaginatively linked to the curriculum, the programme has given children and young people the chance to explore everything about Manchester through creative eyes and cooperative project work.

Mr Leigh-Dalton, Head of Art, said:

I feel the students have done a great job and the final piece is an example of the great talent within our lower years.

The final piece will be on display at The National Cycling Centre throughout the summer before returning to Whalley Range, where it will be proudly displayed in school.
