Bristol Grammar School students’ photo exhibition on show at the BRI

Students of all ages from Bristol Grammar School have contributed to a photographic exhibition on display at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

The exhibition is made up of the winning photos from the school's annual wildlife photography competition - now in its 10th year - and includes shots from children in the infant and junior school as well as from old Bristolians. The competition encourages photographers of all ages to get outside and appreciate the natural world, while developing the creative flair and technical skills for wildlife photography.

The exhibition is on show in the public corridor which joins the Bristol Heart Institute to the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

Bob Pepper, director of facilities and estates at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UH Bristol), and chair of UH Bristol's arts group, says: "We are delighted to be able to exhibit these wonderful photos from the talented students at Bristol Grammar School, which are brightening up one of the main public routes in our hospital.

"This is the first time that the hospital has displayed an exhibition from a local school. We hope that this is just the start for us to work more closely with the wider community to open up our hospitals in this way."

Justin Harford, competition organiser, assistant head and director of sixth form at Bristol Grammar School, said: "I am delighted and proud to see the photos brightening the walls of the hospital; they look fantastic! This joint venture with UH Bristol is a fitting celebration of the 10th year of our competition."
