Alderley Edge School for Girls hosted their first ever Cheshire Schools' Photography competition for pupils in Years 5 and 6 from schools across Cheshire.
The shortlisted schools were Vernon Primary in Poynton, Wilmslow Grange and Loreto Preparatory in Altrincham who competed against a group of girls from the host school.
Each pupil was required to submit a high quality image which they had taken, which met one of the following criteria: 'I am inspired by', 'challenges that help me grow' and 'I look forward to'. The pupils also had to write a 100 word explanation as to why or how their photograph linked to their chosen statement.
The pupils then spent the day at Alderley Edge School for Girls exploring light painting and creative photography techniques before announcing the winners - Lola Ashton, Year 5 winner from Vernon Primary School, and George Church, Year 6 winner from Wilmslow Grange.
Following the pupils success, Helen Jeys, Headmistress at Alderley Edge School for Girls and Michelle Billington, Head of Art and Photography, will be attending the competition winners' schools to present their framed photograph.
Michelle Billington, judge of the competition, said "It was extremely hard to choose between children of such talent.
"We were really impressed with all of the entries and it was a really close call. We had a fantastic day celebrating photography and creativity and it was lovely to share this passion with other schools in the area."
