DLD Art wins two top prizes

7th October 21

On the 6th of October, a selection of our best student Artworks were entered into the annual London West Area Independent Schools’ Association Art Competition at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, near Maidenhead.

This year the 50 % reduction of permitted entries from six to three per category for each school made the event even more competitive than ever. Despite this, I am extremely pleased to report that our submission resulted in four awards, including two elusive first prizes in the most senior year categories for Key Stage 5.

Thanks to Art Department Colleagues whose achievements with their students always allows me to select an extremely strong selection of work to submit.
