City of Peterborough Academy Special School is enjoying a fresh look after bringing in a top artist to work with pupils and create a dazzling new reception area.

The school invited mixed media and movement artist Usha Mahenthiralingam to work with pupils over the course of last term to design a large piece of artwork for the reception area.

The idea came from Head of School Laura Ives, who said: “We wanted the children and the whole school community to enjoy something lively and inspirational in the entrance, setting them up for the day when they first arrive.”
