Our thanks go to Old Blue Stuart Ford from the Class of 1988 for launching an art competition for our students. In November Stuart challenged our students to create a painting of the School Clock Tower and East Wing using watercolour or acrylics.
Stuart was astounded by the quality of entries submitted and found it very difficult to choose the winners. Congratulations go the following students for their fantastic winning designs:
- Third place – Lexine Paul, Year 8 (won £50 Amazon voucher)
- Second place – Olivia Williams, Year 12 (won £100 Amazon voucher)
- Joint first prize winners – Tabitha Bates, Year 12 and Lewis McVey, Year 13 (won £250 Amazon voucher each)
Tabitha and Lewis’ paintings have been shipped off to Los Angeles where Stuart is now based, running his film production and financing company AGC Studios. Thanks go to Stuart for funding the prizes as well as making a generous donation to the School art department.
