Enrichment Day 'Inspiring Women' Art session

Today Year 7 students took part in Enrichment sessions, rotating in groups around the school. 

One of the sessions was a 1 hour Art session with our Artist in Residence, Kirsten Jones.

Te session centred around the theme of 'inspirational women throughout history'.

Students selected images and read about the achievements and contributions made by the women.

They then created studies using Stabilo permanent markers and exploring mark-making techniques to show tone and texture.


'Inspired by her because...'

A selection of the outcomes are shown below..



Rebecca Hancox

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear teacher Rebecca Hancox.  Rebecca joined the school in September 2012 as the Head of Drama, and in her time at school made a huge impression. 

She will be remembered by us all as a happy, friendly person with an extremely positive outlook on life.  Rebecca was passionate about Drama and her students and colleagues have all spoken fondly of how inspiring and influential she had been in their lives.

Our thoughts are with Rebecca’s family at this very sad time.  The school will be holding a Memorial Service in September (details to follow) to give us all a chance to reflect and remember how much we valued and respected our dear teacher and friend.
