Intergalactic Artwork “Out of this World

We were delighted in September to be offered an intergalactic artwork “Out of this World” which had been created by professional street artists, Graffiti Life.

The artwork was offered to the school by global paint brand, Valspar.

Measuring over 4 metres wide we have installed the space mural within our Key Stage 4 corridor so that it can be enjoyed many times a day by our pupils and we hope that this will inspire them to get creative with colour in their art and design work.

The artwork was featured, with some of our Year 4 pupils, in the Eastern Daily Press, Lowestoft Journal and Waveney Advertiser earlier in October.
