They are taking part in a competition to design the school logo for Edlington’s secondary school, which is soon to become known as Sir Thomas Wharton Community College.

There were more than 200 entries in the competition for students and staff at the Tait Avenue comprehensive’s feeder schools to influence the new school design.

Following a selection process 21 students and staff were chosen to work with ex-Edlington pupil David White, now creative director of advertising design company Public.
