Earlier this month a topping out ceremony was held at Cathedral School's new art studio and gallery space.
The school is now working with staff, parents, children, governors and the local community to set Art House up as an art space within reach of the school.
The idea is that children will access the studio for lessons and show work in the gallery but the physical separation from the school will allow the house to also operate within the art world with commissions and shows featuring contemporary artists.
The school is currently looking for funding to support the arts programming for the house.
