Pupils have vowed to go ahead with an art exhibition inspired by a trip to Paris in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Art and photography students at King Alfred School in Golders Green nearly cancelled their planned exhibition of works influenced by meetings with a artists, including a political cartoonist, on a trip to the French capital last year after news of the shootings broke earlier this month.

However, they defiantly chose to carry on with the show, which began on Friday.

Art teacher Sean Parfitt said: “It was unanimous that we should continue.”

The exhibition runs until Friday, February 13.
