Exceptional Art & Design students secure fantastic offers at a host of universities
Warrington & Vale Royal College has a history of running successful art programmes which has nurtured the talents of young artists, helping them to progress onto a range of exciting destinations. This year, we celebrate three vibrant young students who have all secured offers at university and have shown a real dedication to their work. All have had to overcome the challenges of lockdown including being away from the studios in college and fellow peers, working from home with limited access to materials, and having to create a portfolio of work to be assessed in their UCAS applications. Level 3 Art & Design student, Molly Horrocks has impressed after securing offers at all four universities she applied for including her first choice, Manchester Metropolitan University. The former Padgate Academy student says, I managed to achieve a Distinction grade in my work last year, which I wouldn‚Äôt have been able to do without my tutor Hazel‚ support. She has shown me new techniques to use in my photography and I‚Äôve gained confidence in trying new mediums I didn‚Äôt think I‚Äôd be good at. Molly says she has always had a passion for photography and uses her memories of childhood to influence her work, which is reflected in her portfolio. She is hoping to train to become an art teacher with a specialism in photography.
