A Croydon pupil beat thousands of others to make the top 10 of an art competition organised by internet giant Google.

Frankie Long, a year 10 student at Coulsdon High, entered the Doodle For Google competition and made it through to the final 10 in the south east region.

She was one of six students from the school to enter and her drawing was featured in the My Britain Exhibition held at the London Science Museum last month.

Frankie attended an awards ceremony to see her work on display and to receive her prize of a Google goody bag and art materials.

"It's the first time I've ever entered a competition," she said, "I based my doodle on the things about Britain I liked the most and the things I think make Britain great.

"Things like the Queen, a full English breakfast, a British bulldog, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Millennium Dome and the River Thames."

Headteacher Colin Mackinlay said: "Frankie is clearly a very talented artist."
