Seven magnificent King's School Ely students taking Art and Design A-level have all been offered their first choice of university course.

Textiles and Fine Art specialists Jenny Carson and Josephine Norris both have a place at Chelsea School of Art and Catherine Berry has a place at Central St Martin's.

For the past four years, exceptional work in Textiles has placed King's students among the nationwide group of candidates who scored one of the top five marks in Art and Design.

Textiles specialist Vicky Smethers and Kellie Gissing, who is studying Fine Art, have both been offered places on Loughborough University's foundation course.

James Veale, the third King's student to be offered a place on Loughborough's foundation course, and Adam Nix, were among the first students to choose photography two years ago when the subject was first offered as an A-level at King's. Adam has a place to study photography at degree level at De Montford University. Both boys are also taking Fine Art at A-level.

Director of Art, Alison Rhodes, said: "Achieving the offer of a place at colleges and universities with the best reputations is becoming increasingly competitive and I am delighted that these talented students have all achieved their first choice.
