Students at Sirius Academy West in Hull explore their local heritage and the fishing industry.

Students at Sirius Academy West in Hull have been finding out about their local heritage in a ‘Young Maritime Creatives’ project funded by Hull Maritime. Pupil’s aged 11- 16 have been exploring Hessle Road’s once thriving fishing industry and the tragedies of its trawlermen and their pioneering headscarf wearing wives.

The project has enabled students to develop new artistic and creative skills including dance, drama silk painting and felting and this exhibition showcases the creative work they have produced.
