01 May 2018 was a great day for Hillview Art students . Lauren Browne, Will Holloway and Zoe Biagini-Jones were shortlisted for the Turner Contemporary Portfolio Prize (a prestigious competition open to Kent students from all Key Stages, including FE). The students and their families met up with Mr and Mrs Pledge at the Prize Giving in Canterbury Christ Church College.
We are really excited because Zoe Biagini-Jones was awarded two prizes. She won the Key Stage 5 art prize and also the Lilford Gallery Award for ‘Best Up and Coming Young Artist’!
