The talents of sixth formers in the borough were put on show at a special exhibition.

Photography, textiles and art students from the Loxford School of Science and Technology, in Loxford Lane, Ilford, proudly displayed their creations at an event on Thursday.

The exhibitors were made up of both A-Level and AS-Level students, who have been working across a range of topics for their courses.

Those taking textiles have produced work looking at architecture, Spanish culture and the seven deadly sins, while Year 12 students have been looking at the theme of “memories”.

Photographic students have investigated themes such as colour, pattern and texture, portraiture and landscape.
