Film School

We are please to announce that we have completed five films and will be editing these during the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of July. Our premier at the Curzon Cinema in Mayfair will be in September and we look forward to sharing more information with you about it soon. This year has been the largest Film School Club, with 36 students and Mrs Kennedy is very proud of the variety of ideas and styles of film that the five groups have developed.

D1 Theatre Trip

Last week our D1 Theatre Arts students went to the Barbican Theatre to see a play called Obsession with Jude Law. It was staged by a Dutch Theatre company Toneelgroep Amsterdam. The performance was based on the film by Luchino Visconti. This was a great piece of experimental theatre which the students thoroughly enjoyed.

Next Tuesday, 23rd May is development Tuesday, therefore lessons will finish at 2.40pm. Our final Development Tuesday of the year will be on Tuesday, 11th July.

Half-Term Reminder

M4 2017/18 Options

A number of M3 families have asked if their son/daughter can continue to take both Art and French as they go into M4. This was not possible according to our original plan, but it looks as if it is now possible. I am aware of three families who will be happy with this arrangement, but please do let me know if other families would like to consider a change to the course selections made.

Sports News


Volleyball Club

Many thanks to Mr. Mezlini, father of Slim and Mehdi, who came to help out with our volleyball club on Thursday. Mr. Mezlini is a former Olympian volleyball player. The students had a great opportunity to receive some coaching and play with a former world class player. Just another way of how our school community pulls together at Dwight.
