Max Fearey, of Sandringham School, won the nationwide photography competition in the ‘secondary’ category, for his photo on the theme ‘a window into life at school’.

He won a Fujifilm X-A5 camera, a laptop travel bag, a tripod and work experience with a professional photographer. The judges visited the school to present him with his prizes and remarked that his photo was impressive for a younger entrant.

Max, a member of the school photography club, is now preparing to enter the RSPCA Young Photographer Awards.

Headteacher Alan Gray said: “We are really pleased that Max’s superb photograph has been recognised at national level. As soon as we saw Max?s photograph, we knew he had captured a strong response and we were hopeful he would do well.”
