Mali Morris of the RA said, talking of the exhibition " We were amazed by the strength of the works, by their energy, inventiveness and sense of exploration. Congratulations to all the students and their teachers, and cheers to the schools that believe Art is still a vital subject".

At Thomas Hardye we agree whole heartedly with that, as shown by the standard of art work continually produced here and which is being recognised nationally for its excellence.
