A STRATFORD primary school has a sharp new look, thanks to the efforts of art students from Stratford College.

Students linked up with pupils at the Willows to produce a series of work which will go on permanent display at the school.

The work is part of the art and design syllabus, which sees students get some work experience with local organisations. Other placements recently have included the production of a mural at Stratford Leisure and Visitor Centre and work at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Stratford Gallery.

Student Beckie Chamberlain said she enjoyed the work enormously and said: "it was exciting to display the work in school and see the children's reaction to it."
