EXAMPLES of the exceptional work produced by students from the five Bridgwater secondary schools will be on display in the New Year.

The Schools GCSE Art Exhibition 2013 at Bridgwater Arts Centre will feature art by youngsters from Bridgwater College Academy, Robert Blake Science College, Chilton Trinity Technology College, Elmwood School and Haygrove School.

This year the exhibition has been extended from January 9 to February 16 to include the halfterm holiday, giving more opportunity for students, families and friends to see it at the Castle Street venue.

Opening hours are 10am to 3pm, Wednesday to Friday, and 10am to 1pm on Saturdays. The work can also be viewed during bar events, and theatre and band performance nights from 7pm to 11pm.
