Pupils’ prize pumpkins – spooky school sculptures are scream of the crop


Imaginative students from the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership will be carving up some frightfully fangtastic sculptures this Halloween as part of a chilling competition that could see them win a petrifying prize.

The ATLP’s 4,500 plus students from Arthur Terry, Brookvale, Coleshill, Hill West, Mere Green, Slade, Stockland Green school, are being asked to build an imaginative and entertaining Halloween sculpture out of a pumpkin.

Entries must be brought into individual schools first thing and judged at break time on Monday 17 October. The winning entry – which will be announced on Halloween, 31 October – will scoop an Amazon book voucher and the chance to see their creepy creation on the ATLP website.

Andrew Chaplin, assistant headteacher at the Arthur Terry School, said:

Our schools are full of creative students with a flair for originality – and this is a chance for them to put their terrifying talents to the test.

 This fun competition is designed to get people sculpting, carving, shaping and making some truly original pumpkins – this could be anything from a Jack-o’-Lantern with a twist, to a monstrous school ghoul – we want to be spooked by our students!”
