The Art & Design department recently took a group of Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form students to The Higgins Museum in Bedford.
The aim of the visit was to experience first hand the high quality Lino prints of the world-renowned artist Edward Bawden. The English painter, illustrator and graphic artist was known for his prints, book covers, posters, and garden furniture.
He was one of the most significant graphic designers of the 20th Century and his distinctive style was not influenced by the vagaries of fashion or trends.
The students did drawings from Bawdens work then participated in a Lino printing workshop hosted by the museum who hold the major collection of his work.
Thank you for attending our Year 10 Parents' evening. We appreciate parental feedback to help us improve our evenings for you and I would be grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete our online form.
A group of students in Year 11 are involved in the Sky Sports ‘Living for Sport’ scheme.
They are working together to plan a sports festival for the children at Great Denham Primary School. The sports that the group plan to offer range from Danish Long Ball to Futsal. Later on in the term, Mike Mullen, a professional BMX rider, will lend a helping hand (and hopefully perform a few tricks along the way).
