Students – and staff – at Harwich and Dovercourt High School, as well as pupils from nearby primary schools, were invited to enter the Amazing Angles competition.

Entrants had to submit a picture capturing the theme.

The secondary school category winner, and overall winner, was year seven student Isla Grubb with her picture ‘Red’. St Joseph’s Primary School pupil Harry Newman won the younger category with his picture ‘I Spy’, while Anna Day bagged the staff competition with her photo ‘Frank’.

Children’s TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson, from CBeebies, judged the entries and awarded the prizes – which included a camera and a tablet PC – as well as talking to youngsters about her career.

Andrew Dace, learning resource centre manager at Harwich and Dovercourt High School, said: “This was the best turn-out we have had, and the entries were fantastic – I’m glad I was not judging them. There was such a high standard.

“Given we are on the coast I thought we would have lots of the beach, but there was a great range of subjects, including animals, ferries, and even Olympic monuments.
