Sandringham win Inter-House Art Competition

Pupils from Year 7-13 were encouraged to take part and the competition was held from Monday 8th - Thursday 11th February, during Period 7

This year the theme set for the Inter-House Art Competition 2016 was:

Gordon’s School Values

Pupils from Year 7-13 were encouraged to take part and the competition was held from Monday 8th - Thursday 11th February, during Period 7.
The title was given to the Houses in advance so they could research, plan and have a good idea of what they were going to do during the 2 hour competition.
This year for the first time, pupils were provided with an A1 sized canvas on which to work. Pupils planned their piece prior to 8th February and put together their research, analysis and evaluation. Unbiased judging took place after the competition dates with pupils’ work judged on the following:
  1. IDEAS: Originality, and an obvious development of an idea.
  2. RESEARCH: Evidence of link to art/the arts for inspiration.
  3. PRACTICAL SKILLS: Ability to use medium or materials. 
  4. PRESENTATION: Overall finish to the final piece.
Each year I am delighted to see each House put a lot of time and effort into thorough planning, research and organisation with this year being no exception. The judges were particularly impressed with all the creative ideas, as it was clear to see careful thought and imagination had gone into considering a personal and collective link to the title ‘Gordon’s School Values: Courtesy, Integrity, Diligence, Enthusiasm and Resilience’. After much deliberation, judges agreed unanimously on the top 3 Houses:
3rd Place: WINDSOR
