Arts and culture were celebrated by young art students during an evening of entertainment.

The Sixth Form Bolton arts, film, English, performing arts, media and music students showcased their learning in a special event put on for family and friends.

The idea was to establish closer connections between parents and the sixth form college, so both an support young people in their studies - as well as celebrating the work going on in class.

First-year A- level student, Isabelle Flannery, joined The Sixth Form in September and is currently studyingEnglish literature, history and religious, ethics and philosophy.

The former St Joseph's RC High School pupil created a model of the famous Globe Theatre illustrating its significance to visitors through her own research and study of William Shakespeare.

Isabelle said: “I have loved my first four weeks at The Sixth Form, I have learnt so much already. It has been fascinating to lead on a research project and to have the opportunity to display my work to friends and family."

Mofifoluwa Oyesola, another first-year A-level media studies student researched and pitched a brand-new app designed to support young children with their phonics and spellings.

Mofifoluwa said: “The project has been a great introduction to the subject, I have enjoyed the research elements and presenting my ideas to my peers.”
