PUPILS from two of the borough's schools had a lesson in the arts as they met with a group of experts.

Students from RSA Academies Arrow Vale and Ipsley were visited by professional artists and architects, offering them industry advice and potential work experience placements in the future.

The fellows, who are part of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of arts, manufactures and commerce) scheme will also use their knowledge and experience to add to the curriculum.

A school spokesman said: "Students at Redditch RSA Academies will have access to a wide range of fantastic opportunities which will enhance their learning and life experiences. This is just one of many things both schools will be doing over the coming years."
