Ellen Tinkham College

Ellen Tinkham School FE College is based at Bodley House, Wayside Crescent, Exeter.

The Key Stage 5 (Post 16 Education) curriculum is linked to the ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ Framework, with student outcomes centred around Education and Employment, Independence, Community Inclusion and Health.

Recently students at the college had the opportunity to work with the artist Catherine Cartwright, who was inspired by her Artist In Residence at Ellen Tinkham College. Following her time with us, she created this short film. The themes of the film are Joy, Positivity and a celebration of the students involved. It was recently screened as part of Art Week Exeter.

“This animated film is meant to be viewed on loop. It is inspired by and represents young people from special needs college, Ellen Tinkham in Exeter. I used a monotype printmaking process.” – Catherine Cartwright
