Sparks School

This year sees St Peter’s Academy become a ‘Sparks’ school. This allows students the opportunity to engage with clay and the many ways of working in this wonderful material. With the help of Katie Leonard and Jo Ayre from the BCB Clay Foundation, students from all year groups will get to experience clay in their classwork. Annie Sanderson from Unity is also on hand to give students the opportunity to gain an Arts mark Bronze Award.

To start off this exciting partnership, Year 9 students were involved in producing porcelain clay pea and bean pods.  These were commissioned for the “Clay Comrades” art installation at the Lost Gardens Event at Festival Park.
