The bust of West Lakes Academy Vice Principle Ross Jervis is starting to take shape.
As the day goes on Egremont born sculptor Paul Bainbridge will add to the face and build it out.
The finished bust will be given to Mr Jervis when he leaves the school in July following three decades in teaching.
Mr Bainbridge is one of the school's ambassadors and hopes the pupils will be inspired by what he does.
