The students’ work from their visit was also displayed in Nene Park Academy’s annual Summer Art Exhibition on July 14 alongside work from older students at the Academy.

Naomi Clarke, head of art at Nene Park Academy, commented: “This is a great example of the work we do in collaboration with local primary schools.

“It was great to have the students attend our annual exhibition and show off their work and we hope that this will lead to establishing a larger art network with more local primary schools in Peterborough. We look forward to welcoming the students from Leighton again later this year!”
