The King's School in Macclesfield


    Year 5 Impress in Cheshire Art Competition

    Year 5 Impress in Cheshire Art Competition

    Earlier this year, Year 5 pupils entered a county-wide, interactive, inter-school art competition. The Cheshire dot-art Schools Art Competition is designed to nurture talent, raise ambition and take art out of the classroom and into the real world. 


    Judges selected three top entries from each of the 21 schools entering the competition. At King’s, it was Charlie Maunders who impressed the judges the most with his portrait of King Henry VIII. He was awarded first place, with Emily Matthews’ outstandingly beautiful silk painting of a galaxy coming second and Reuben Blackhurst, who showed talent with his sketch of poppies to commemorate the soldiers of World War 1, coming third. All three students have done exceptionally well, and we are very proud of their achievements. 


    Charlie’s work has been selected to go in the art exhibition at The Old Library in Chester, from 28 June – 12 July, along with the other first-placed entries from each participating Cheshire school.
