Mr Cunningham explained that the GCSE students work is based on the topics they have covered during the last two years.

- 2 Camera to be installed in village to address long-standing speeding woes
- 3 Co-operation 'vital' in A505 Royston to Granta Park scheme
- 4 Safety concerns continue in final days of travel hub consultation
- 5 Margaret House residential home celebrates 50th anniversary milestone
- 6 Mum of four sought by police over child neglect claims
- 7 Get set for Strawberries & Creem Festival in the Cambridgeshire countryside
- 8 Historic Mayflower train makes its way through Royston and Meldreth
- 9 Hunt the hearts at town trail to raise money for charity
- 10 Spitfires and more... IWM Duxford prepares for 2021 Battle of Britain Air Show
He said: "One of the topics was 'The way we live', which focussed on the world around us.
"Students have interpreted this in a number of different ways, either looking at buildings and structures, or placing themselves in a fantasy environment."
Other work sees students drawing on the influence of artists such as Paul Cezanne, Pieter Mondriaan, and Henri Matisse.
