Furniture Awards

On Tuesday 10th October Edward was lucky enough to be awarded 3rd place at the Young Furniture Makers Awards Exhibition in London.  Edward presented his As-Level product (a gaming chair that converts into a coffee table) along side some innovative and original furniture projects from Schools and Universities from across the country.  After receiving both the 3rd place prize and a commendation for his project he was also awarded the Best in Show Innovation award from Blum furniture – a prize of an all expense paid trip to their factory in Austria.
Needless to say, we are all extremely proud of Edward and his hard work over the course of his As-Level project.

Chinese teachers learn at EWS

On Wednesday 20 September EWS a group of teachers and school leaders from China visited the school to investigate our strengths in drama and the arts, and in provision for careers information, advice and guidance.  The group spent time in lessons on both campuses, and talked to students and staff about these areas.  It was a privilege to host the visitors, and they commended our students on their conduct and enthusiasm.  Many thanks go to all those who made them feel so welcome.
