Specially commissioned artwork created by our pupils has been incorporated into the interior design of Maycroft Manor, a new care home in Brighton
Pupils from all year groups participated in this special project to create artwork with a ‘vintage transport’ theme. Jacqueline Farguson, Design Manager for Maycroft Manor, said: “The children have worked so hard and really managed to incorporate the themes of the home which includes references to the history of the London to Brighton car run and the Bluebell railway. Their work is creative, colourful and vibrant and we absolutely love it.”
