The school took the students on a day-long field trip to the Newcastle Quayside, The Angel of the North and the City of Durham to give them an opportunity to make creative decisions about their photography.

The pupils developed their technical knowledge and created exciting and innovative images which are displayed at the Botanic Gardens entitled ‘Belmont Community School’s “My North East” exhibition".
