At All Hallows, being creative is at the very heart of everything we do. By ensuring children are in touch with all that has the potential to inspire and excite them and by celebrating individuality, critical thinking, imaginative insights and fresh ideas, we are encouraging children to approach all that they do with a creative outlook.
Nowhere is this more evident than in our innovative Creative Design Centre, as was recently demonstrated at our Creative Showcase. Our pupils were able to display their huge range of work including life-size sellotape statues, a multitude of flying cranes – a bird symbolised on our school logo – and some stunning photographic work. Under the inspiring leadership of Berin Nelson and Sacha Guppy (Head of Creative Design and Art respectively), the children are able to work with a wide range of media and are regularly using the state-of-the art facilities for coding, laser cutting and 3D printing alongside a wealth of traditional tools. It is no surprise that the Creative Design Centre is a favourite place to be for many.
It is not just the older pupils who have the opportunity to use these facilities. Even the youngest children in the Nursery and Reception classes are introduced to the centre with their creativity being encouraged with different design projects such as making frisbees, clocks, boats, roller coasters and dinosaurs.
“Awakening the children to broaden their minds and widen their perspectives is key. We want our children to express themselves, to collaborate, to exchange ideas and build collective solutions to complex problems” says Headmaster, Trevor Richards. “As well as our dynamic academic curriculum, we expose them to a wealth of opportunities in sport, music, drama, art, creative design and Forest School, fostering an all-round approach to their learning.”
