Artistic pupils have seen their work go on display in an exhibition at the swanky headquarters of global bank HSBC.
Eight students, aged 14-16, from George Green’s School on the Isle of Dogs have come up with artwork inspired by items found in the bank’s archives.
The historical collection of information records how staff lived and worked at the bank – with treasures such as letters, photos and banknotes preserved.
Those students who took part in the scheme are on the school’s alternative curriculum programme for those who find the traditional curriculum challenging.
A school spokesperson said: “The young people have worked extremely hard and were able to talk to various visitors to the exhibition demonstrating growing confidence and a huge amount of pride in themselves.”
The works will be on display in the foyer of the bank’s Canary Wharf offices until May 24.
