At the end of this term Years 7, 8, and 9 had the opportunity to compete in a skateboard design competition and have their designs judged by professionals. 

The judges we had were… 

Freya Parker

Freya currently works in film editing for television. While studying for her degree she designed skateboards, skate clothes and stickers for skate shops and also did the website design for Hot Box in Chelmsford.

 Emily & Lee Alexander

Emilees Custom Boards

When Emily and Lee began skateboarding they decided to customise their own boards which led to them deciding to start their own business selling their designs and undertaking commissions for customers. They sell their designs on Etsy and they specialise in hydro dipping, hand drawing and painting boards.

Each student got 30 minutes to complete their design, let’s have a look at what we got…
