Sophia Shortlisted for Nancy Rothwell Award

We were very proud to learn that our Year 12 student, Sophia AG, had made the shortlist for the 2021 Royal Society of Biology Nancy Rothwell Award in the 15-18 age group with her amazing drawing of a Sea Turtle.

The Nancy Rothwell Award has been running since since 2014, encouraging and celebrating biological specimen drawing. It promotes the value of observation, creativity and artistry in science learning and discovery and is an invitation to young students to explore the practice of recording and describing specimens through art.

Sophia was one of almost 800 young people who submitted their artwork last spring to be considered for the Nancy Rothwell Award. The competition highlights the benefits of combining art and science and Sophia definitely succeeded in delighting her Science and Art teachers alike with her in-depth knowledge and incredible skill.

Following the announcement of the winners, Sophia's wonderful artwork, along with all the winning and shortlisted paintings, was displayed at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester until the beginning of January: https://bit.ly/3q9mVw2
