Artist of the moment – Alex in Middle Fifth

Posted: 14th June 2024

The art department regularly recognises the achievements of individual pupils in the senior school through the award of the title, ‘Artist of the Moment’. Entries cover a wide range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and mixed media celebrating the diverse talents of pupils in our co-educational day school.

Our artist of the moment this week is Alex in Middle Fifth. She is working on the theme of ‘Identity’ and is interested in nostalgia and childhood memories in particular. She has been experimenting on materials which evoke these feelings, such as denim and items of clothing from her own childhood. This cyanotype on denim has been particularly effective and we look forward to seeing how this project will culminate in a final outcome towards the end of this term. Well done Alex.

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
