Our annual exhibition began with an eclectic screening of short films by our media students at the Everyman cinema in Belsize Park. An exceptional collection of textiles, photography and art pieces by the students were exhibited in the hall and throughout the college. Our guests enjoyed canapés and drinks in the sunny courtyard, accompanied by songs throughout the afternoon from our talented music students. Another successful exhibition, and an unforgettable day.

Our Year 10 and 11 students recently enjoyed three days in historic and multicultural capital Brussels, and port city Ghent. The students explored the art nouveau rich architecture and history of Brussels such as the Old England Building, a former department store from 1899 housing a ground-breaking music museum. They picnicked in the Bois de la Cambre, one of the most beautiful green spaces in Brussels.  A day trip to Ghent included a visit to St Bavo Cathedral, a towering 14th century Gothic build with an impressive rare art collection.

The College was thrilled to welcome human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell, who gave a talk to our Lower Sixth students on May 15th as part of our Enrichment series.

Peter is perhaps most famous for his attempted citizen’s arrests of Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe and Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono president of Indonesia. He spoke inspiringly about the importance and power of direct action that can bring under-reported human rights abuses to public attention. His work over many years for LGBT rights has helped bring about changes that now we take for granted, such as gay marriage and the acceptance of diverse sexuality in public life.

Fine Arts filmed the talk which you can view below:

Students from all years came together to put on a fabulous performance of music and drama pieces.

There were some very mature deliveries of scenes from plays such as Three Sisters, and The Seagull by Chekhov. Our budding pianists blew us away with Bach and Schumann, and we were serenaded by some remarkable vocals with classical and pop pieces, as well as students’ own compositions. The standard of talent was very high, and all the participants should be congratulated.

The evening ended with candlelit Christmas carols in the courtyard, accompanied by a brass band, and plenty of mince pies.

Our A Level Art and History students enjoyed a four day trip to Berlin, taking full advantage of the city’s incredible museums and landmarks.

Berlin is a city rich in history and brimming with historical sites. In the last hundred years it has been the centre of the Prussian Kingdom, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the Cold War and German re-unification.

This history is visible in the art, the architecture and the cultural personality of the city and makes it a very stimulating destination for artists and historians.

This trip offered our students invaluable knowledge and experience which they will use to build up their coursework and portfolios.
