Hilbre High School

About This School

Hilbre High School is a mixed ability school in West Kirby. The Art department believe in students expressing themselves individually through a range of media and techniques-with an emphasis on drawing and colour. In the past, we ran Fine Art and Graphic Design courses so have a very illustrative house style that accommodates anything from digital responses to animation to traditional painting. This is our second year running a 3 years GCSE and students have sampled all the titles within the current Art, Craft & Design GCSE. The work represented is a response to their 'pre course-work' studies on the themes of 'Pollution, Environment, Habitats' and 'Portraiture'.


School Competition Entries

Our panel of art experts have selected their top three artworks from each school and public voting is now open until 26th April 2019. The winners will be announced here on Monday 29th April. The first-placed entry from each school will be included in an exhibition at Liverpool School of Art and Design starting on the 19th June.
