Canford places literacy at the heart of learning, Head of English, Richard Redwood, recommends inspiring reads for 16 year olds and the Canford library launches new systems to keep Canford Covid-secure.
Canford’s talented pupil artists are holding an exhibition of their Pre-U work at a London gallery over the weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October.
‘Telling Stories’ showcases Art presented to examiners in last summer’s Pre-U examinations. Much of it was graded at distinction level, and many of the pupil artists have now moved on to Foundation Courses at top Art Colleges.
Nicola Will, Head of Art, explained the background to the exhibition’s theme:
“As artists we use stories to make sense of our world and to share that understanding with our communities. ‘Telling Stories’ is the final collection of work from the Upper Sixth cohort which aims to present the various narratives that exist in the very individual bodies of work. Ideas encompassing domesticity, loss, nostalgia and sexuality are explored though experiments with media including film, textiles, drawing and painting.”
All members of the Canford community and wider public are most welcome to go along to the gallery at 6 Ryder Street, London SW1Y 6QB to view the art. The exhibition is free and will be open between 10am and 4pm each day. For more information please visit the school website www.canford.com/telling-stories
With many thanks to current parents Mr and Mrs Kalmanson for their generous support of this event.
