Magda Bullivant, a former Downlands Community School pupil, has been offered a place on the BA (Hons) Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts, part of the University of the Arts, London.
There were over 3,000 applicants for very few places. Magda has been accepted straight from A Level which is very unusual as art students are expected to complete a foundation course before applying for an Art Degree.
There were only two places available for pupils who had not completed a foundation art course.
Ms Moss, Head of Teaching & Learning for Creative Arts at Downlands and all the Downlands team would like to offer Magda their congratualtions!
