A HARROW school celebrated the opening of its art gallery with a photography competition for its students and those at two partner schools.
John Lyon School in Middle Road, Harrow, invited everyone from the school as well as those at Harrow School and Northwood College, to submit pieces based on the theme of people and places.
Students aged from 11 to 18 now have their works displayed alongside photographs taken by staff at the school, including teachers, support workers, cleaners and technicians.
Headteacher Katherine Haynes said: "Our new gallery opened earlier this year and has already proved a valuable addition to our arts facilities. We are delighted to open up this new facility to our friends and colleagues from Harrow School and Northwood College.
"We wanted to involve as many people as possible and it's been exciting to see the high standard of work produced by staff and students at the three schools.
"We are looking forward to holding other exhibitions of art and photography in the coming months."
The photography exhibition included a competition judged by former JLS pupil Stuart Haden, a leading professional documentary photographer.
He won the school's art prize himself while at the school in the late 1950s. The winners he chose are all pupils at JLS: two boys from year 13 - Param Patel and Kasra Karimi - and Jake Modaresi, of year 10.
The works all went up for sale, with the proceeds going to the school's charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and to build a seating area for the boys.
The exhibition ended last Friday.
