Eco Competition Win
Posted 11th May 2022
We are proud to announce that Villa Real School have won first prize in a national competition called 'Small hands can change the world' set by the company that provides the clothes bank skips for recycling. We produced a display board which shows how pupils in school are learning about climate change and eco awareness so that they can be part of the change. Our display was produced by children in F1A who created an Earth made of their hand prints and their exploration into green transport, and by S2 pupils thinking about reducing their carbon footprint and using art and sculpture to express this. We were very pleased to win an apple tree which the company will come and help plant and £100 to go into school funds.

CE Awareness Virtual Gallery
Posted 24th March 2021
In Spring 2020 we were due to host a portrait gallery of our CE students as part of Conductive Education’s 70th birthday celebrations, during the CE awareness week.
We are commemorating this with a virtual Art Gallery.
The students chose a theme linked to their hopes and dreams, posed for a photograph and then were transported into their dream world by Cleo from Angelic Imagery.
