National Competition Winner-Holmer Green Senior School
Abigail Swallow (16) in year 12, who has won a national art competition.
Abigail's textile "leaves" pieces, which are currently hanging in the Headteacher’s office have been selected to feature in Cutting Edge magazine, which will be viewed by students and teachers all over the UK and Ireland.
The pieces are made from materials with very fine machine embroidery, inspired by the artist Jacki Cardy.
Abigail gained A* grades - both with 100% at GCSE level in August, and recently received letters from the examination board naming her as one of the highest achievers in the UK.
