Our annual Summer Exhibition opened with a screening of short films by the Film Studies students, which was held at the Everyman Cinema in Belsize Park. Following this, drinks and canapés were served in the sunny courtyard, accompanied by a variety of performances from the music students. The photography students’ work was displayed around the college, and an art exhibition was held in the hall, exhibiting the art students final pieces.

An awards ceremony was held in the courtyard marquee, and prizes were given out by the principal to students who were nominated by tutors for contribution to the college, and academic achievements. The Fashion and Textiles students held a fashion show, with their pieces modelled on a red carpet catwalk in the courtyard. It was a fantastic showcasing of our students’ talents and with the weather on our side, and the music and bubbly flowing, it was a joyous day.

Over the past month, fine arts has been collecting food donations for Camden Foodbank. They provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. Our collection table was so overflowing with donations from staff and students, that one load has already been taken to the foodbank, delivered by our Lower School students. It is touching to see how many students have supported the community and those in need with their donations.

On Thursday the 21st of March, my class and I visited the Martin Parr ‘Only Human’ exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Parr is best known for his anthropological, satirical and intimate look at British life. I particularly enjoyed how accessible, fresh and un-pretentious the exhibition was. My favourite room was the pink ‘celebrity’ room, and I loved the Little Britain portrait of David Walliams and Matt Lucas. Overall, this was by far the best exhibition I have ever visited and truly had a great time, I believe anyone could find something they like in this exhibition. Martin Parr has once again done wonders and truly outdone himself. I’m looking forward to exploring more of his work in the future.

The lower and upper sixth politics students went on a 2 day trip to Edinburgh, the UK’s other great capital. The students visited Scottish Parliament, the National Museum of Scotland, and key sites of the Scottish Enlightenment, the cradle of modern political thought. The trip allowed the students to better understand the devolution settlement and the importance of regionalism in British politics, as well as reflect on nation, nationalism, and the present and future of the United Kingdom.
