The exhibition, titled At Home, was curated by the Sixth Model Colleges Association (SFCA) and includes the work of 140 students.

“This exhibition highlights the extraordinary artistic talent in our sector,” said Bill Watkin, the Authority’s chief executive.

“It is essential that we keep the arts in education safe and prosperous.

“If young people are to make a valuable contribution to society – even if they want to be successful scientists, engineers, doctors and technicians – they need to develop their creative skills, artistic sensitivities and their ability to interact with others.

“All this will be more important than ever in the post-Covid world.”

Here is a selection of works from the exhibition.
