A Wharfedale student has won an award for creating an "outstanding" piece of design artwork.

Philip Robinson from Lindley, near Otley, was one of three winners chosen by luxury kitchens and home interiors studio, Grid Thirteen, at The Grammar School at Leeds' (GSAL) annual competition.

The firm partners with the school to support its Art, Design and Technology end of year show there the creations of more than 100 GCSE, AS level and A level students is showcased.

Natalie Fry from Grid Thirteen said: "We wanted to get involved with design and technology at the school to invest in local education and the potential of the next generation coming through to the design industry.

"The artwork is outstanding, of exceptional quality, and it was difficult to choose the prize winners. The winners were standout pieces and I would happily give them house room."

Head of design and technology at GSAL, John Bagshaw, added: "The exhibition is a fabulous showcase for our students' creativity and we are very grateful for the support of Grid Thirteen.

"Industry links are so valuable for students, helping them to see the relevance of their design assignments to the real world and demonstrating that there are genuine career opportunities for talented designers."

Seventeen year old Philip, who is doing design and technology, maths with further maths, and physics at A level, plans to study civil engineering at Bath.
