A COLOURFUL feature has been unveiled at Tushingham-with-Grindley Primary School.

The eye-catching stained glass window was completed at the end of last term and is already attracting praise from students, parents and staff.

It was inspired by pictures drawn by pupils, as well as the school prayer, and features pupils, staff and an array of animals, including a hedgehog.

The window has been installed in the school hall by Andrew Seddon, from the Stained Leaded Glass Company, based in Bolton.

Headteacher Kath Shephard said: “Every child in school designed and made their own stained glass window during a special workshop with Andrew.

“Families were invited to a memorable assembly in June when Andrew captivated the audience, children and adults alike, with his display of glass cutting and free-hand designs.”

Andrew, who has worked on many stained glass projects with children of all ages, added: “It’s a lovely school and I really enjoyed making the window – it’s a lovely design.

“We worked faithfully to the children’s own designs and gave them their drawings back so they can see where their designs feature on the window.”

He continued: “I think it looks great. It’s a lovely addition the hall and it’s a great focal point.”
