Leicestershire Jubilee Art Competition

For Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Leicestershire’s Lord Lieutenant held an art competition for the county’s children.


The children in school had great enjoyment in drawing and colouring their entries, which were then sent off to enter the competition. 


School held their own internal judging competition on these entries and below are the winners from each class, who received a colouring pencil set as their prize:


Maple              :  Archie

Fir                    :  Tilly

Willow              :  Alfie

Oak                 :  Danya

Elm                  :  Julia

Sycamore       :  Braygan

Cedar              :  Safa

Poplar              :  Ryan


You can imagine our delight when school was contacted to say one of our children had been chosen as a runner-up! 


We kept this a secret until a special visitor came to school to present the certificate and art set prize in a recent assembly.  In the words of our visitor, Leicestershire’s Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Professor Robert Allison CBE, there were literally hundreds and hundreds of entries.  So, our HUGE congratulations go to Sienna.  Well deserved.  Well done.

We wish all our pupils, parents and staff, a very happy summer holiday. See you all again on 29th August 2024. Please contact the school office should you require a place for your child at Thorpe Acre Juniors. If you would like to purchase a book for school from our Wish List, please visit
