William Cobbett Primary School submitted an array of artwork into this year’s Young Artists’ Summer Show at the Royal Academy.

Eight-year-old William Cobbett Primary School pupil Amelie Rondeau’s artwork Sausage Dog – Tinsel was chosen to be part of the show at the Royal Academy.

This is an impressive accomplishment for Amelie, as not only has the work been chosen for the exhibition from more than 21,000 artworks, it is also only one of two works from Key Stage 2 to be awarded a prize.

Amelie has won a £50 art voucher for herself to spend on art materials, and she has also won £500 worth of art materials for her school.

As a prize winner, her artwork will be part of the exhibition at the Royal Academy and Amelie and her family have been invited to attend a prizewinners’ ceremony where Rebecca Salter, president of the Royal Academy of Arts, will present each winner with their voucher and certificate.

Sharon Pritchard, headteacher of William Cobbett Primary School, said: “Well done to all the children from William Cobbett Primary School who took part in the Royal Academy Young Artist competition.

“We are so proud of Amelie for her fantastic achievement.

“To be part of the final exhibition from more than 21,000 entries is remarkable and a real credit to her creativity and hard work.

“Thank you to Emily Jenkins, our art co-ordinator who enabled the children to take part – she is looking forward to using the £500 prize money to further enhance the high-quality art provision we offer all of the children at the school.”
