The annual Design & Technology Exhibition was another triumph, showcasing some outstanding work.
A great turnout of students, staff and parents celebrated the fantastic work produced by GCSE, AS, and A Level students and, as always, the standard of work was spectacular and the hours of hard work and commitment were evident. Pieces ranged from iPod speakers, to pop-up books, to high-end fashion.
For one night only, the exam hall became a runway to rival Milan, and guests were tempted by delicious treats from food technology and catering students.
Alan Bolger, Head of Design and Technology, said: “The work produced by the students of King James’s School has simply blown us all away! Another fantastic exhibition fully supported by the parents and community of Knaresborough.”
Awards were given to students whom staff felt deserved extra recognition. At GCSE the prizewinning students were Leanna Henderson (Product Design), Lucy Thacker (Graphics), Ed Moore (Resistant Materials), Jasmine Rowson (Textiles), Sam Reilly (Hospitality and Catering), and Emily Stanworth (Food Technology).
At AS and A Level, the Textiles winners were Ruby Hann and Phoebe White, along with Max Bridge and Abi Hatch for Product Design. The overall prize for best in show went to Josh Argent, for his furniture design.
