Sixth formers showcased their photography skills at a media exhibition.

Students studying A-level Media were split into groups and tasked with organising an exhibition of their work.

Each group chose a theme for their photos and assigned different roles to each student involved. Photos were then displayed for parents, staff and fellow students to see.

Larissa Farr and Gemma Woolley, both 17, said the roles ranged from legal and ethical to venue design.

Larissa said: “We had to think of everything that would be involved with organising and holding an event.

“Our theme was dark fairy tales and it was based on the Brothers Grimm novel. Some of our inspiration came from Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood. We were really pleased with the way it all turned out.”

Vongai Monangatire, 17, and Benedicte Kiza, 18, and the rest of their group experimented with photo effects.

Benedicte said: “We were really pleased with the way the photos turned out. We looked at the contrast between night and day time and used effects to create orbs on the pictures.”

Jonathan Jarvis, Head of Sixth Form at Saint Benedict CVA, said: “I am always impressed by the level of creativity and professionalism that our Sixth Form students show and this exhibition was a wonderful example of this. The students have to work independently as this examination unit is also about using real-world skills in preparation for the next stage of their education.”
