New Designers Exhibition


May 2024

Dear Parent/Carer

New Designers Exhibition

We have the opportunity to take Design Technology and Graphics students on a trip to the New Designers Exhibition in Islington ( on Friday 5th July.  This exhibition is a showcase for newly graduated degree students across a wide range of disciplines; their work is showcased both to the public, but also to industry leaders who view and judge their work.  It is nationally recognised as a focal point for an emerging generation of designers and is an inspirational opportunity for our students to see where their DT and Graphics course could take them.

Please see the below information from New Designers regarding this week:
