Year 7 pupils from Ribblesdale High are already making their mark on the school... quite literally.

For the past two years, the new starters have taken part in a unique venture with Paint Pot of Swan Courtyard, Clitheroe, to paint their own tile, which is then displayed on corridor walls around the school. The project is entitled “This is me”.

Claire Neave, owner of Paint Pot commented: “The pupils receive a brief when they start school, asking them to design something which relates to them, it could be a hobby or a favourite pet – we then go in and help them paint their design on to a tile. We plan to carry on until all the walls are full!”
