ART & MIND - an exhibition of pupil artwork

The pupil-led Arts Forum established the ‘Art & Mind’ project to explore how the arts can help people's health and wellbeing and to raise awareness of the many benefits of getting involved in the arts, as this was especially important over lockdown when this project was launched.
