The art department at King’s Ely entered young people in the National Fashion and Textiles Awards and won three top prizes.
A Level textiles student Jessica Nurse was awarded first prize, Mia Takehara was runner up and highly commended and Holly Parker was commended.
Alison Rhodes, Director of Art at King’s Ely Senior, said: “This is a fantastic award and one that all of my A Level students have worked so hard to achieve.
“I would like to congratulate all of our students on submitting such inventive outcomes showing a highly individual approach to project requirements.”
The highly competitive event celebrates the diverse range of fashion design produced for A Level by students aged 16 to 19.
A total of seven pieces of work out of a shortlist of 20 were designed by King’s Ely students.
