My grateful thanks to the Parents’ Association for funding two fantastic artistic workshops for the boys in the Prep this week. They loved creating some very cool graffiti art and I was so impressed with their excellent ‘Wallace & Gromit’ inspired models. We have also greatly enjoyed having some ‘big boys’ from Hampton School on site this week, working with us on their Silver Arts Awards. The Silver Arts Award, managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England, is a GCSE-equivalent qualification which enables young people to research, plan, complete and review a creative project of their own choosing and develop leadership skills in their chosen area. To develop these leadership abilities, the Hampton School pupils ran workshops on a wide variety of creative activities, including: drama, creative writing, clothes design, modelling, music, animation, and computer game design. This was a fantastic opportunity for some truly dynamic collaboration between the Prep and Senior School boys.
