Bill Esterson Member of Parliament for Sefton Central
Budding artists drew a crowd to Clarence High school in Formby as A Level and GCSE students showed off their work.
Formby MP Bill Esterson joined Sefton Mayor Cllr Dave Robinson at the event at the West Lane school where more than 100 pieces of artwork were on display and for sale.
Mr Esterson said the pupils should be proud of their achievements and said they had done the school, which is closing its doors at the end of this month, proud.
The Sefton Central MP said: “It was great to see such fantastic work from students. They had obviously put their hearts and souls into the paintings and sculptures and had thought deeply about the different methods and subjects.
“The pupils are a credit to the school and it is such a shame that it is closing down despite delivering such a superb education for these young people.”
Clarence High school caters for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. The decision to close the school, which is run by the charity Nugent, was made earlier this year. The pupils who attend the school will be found educational placements elsewhere.
