Fourth Plinth Schools Award 2013

Year 7 and Year 8 students have been working on their 'Fourth Plinth' competition entries in Art Club this term. Students have designed and produced an artwork inspired by Fourth Plinth commissions in Trafalgar Square.

This year's competition will be judged by Gregor Muir, who is the Executive Director of the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA).

Students were aiming to produce outstanding works of art of the highest quality which are:
  • An exciting idea;
  • Visually impressive;
  • Encourage people to think about the location in Trafalgar Square and London more generally.
These are the fantastic artworks which the students worked hard under the guidance of Ms Bunting-Branch to create.
