Dozens of talented students will help to brighten up the community with a world-class art exhibition of their work starting on Friday 1st of October.

Year 11 GCSE Art students at three schools in The Priory Learning Trust in Somerset will display their stunning artwork opposite Waterstones in the Sovereign Centre in Weston-super-Mare.

Dozens of incredible students are represented at Worle Community School Academy, Priory Community School Academy and The King Alfred School Academy.

There are some superb pieces to be exhibited including photography, artwork, and 3-D work.

The art exhibition will start tomorrow for two weeks and will become an annual event with a showcasing of students art.
