Design and technology prepares students to participate in today’s and tomorrow’s rapidly

Celebration of Creativity

Every year at Sherburn High, we celebrate our students outstanding creativity.
We often witness an outstanding turn out of students, families and staff at the
Celebration of Creativity event.

Students from Textiles, Product Design, Food Technology, Art and Photography display their inspirational and excellent work in an exhibition. Judges for the evening often comment on the exceptionally high calibre of work produced by our students, making it extremely difficult for them to decide which student’s work was worthy of their prizes.

This is a wonderful event, joining together as a community to celebrate all the hard work our students have produced and they are deservedly proud of their finished products and coursework folders.
