  • Painter’s Progress!

    Year 12 student Rebecca Godfrey - I have captured a river view from a walkway by the River Stour. I like how I have fashioned the reflections of the trees and the shrubbery in the river.
    Year 12 student Ivan Pitts - The painting that I have produced is of my parents lighting a candle in the kitchen because tone could be created with the presence of light
    Year 13 student Jess Joyce - I decided to explore the translucency of water and paint.  I am quite proud of my final pieces as it is the first time I have painted in an abstract way.

    Hedingham School and Sixth Form has an impressive record of outstanding achievement in Art and it looks like this year will be no exception! The A Level Art students have finished their exams and this Friday families and friends are invited to view an exhibition of their work which showcases their artistic talent. The students received their exam papers in February and then worked in their own time, with advice and guidance from their teachers, to prepare for their practical exam.  Ms Kathy Crawley.

    Dylan Barton, Year 8 student, trying out the new minibus

    Hedingham School is delighted to have taken delivery of a new minibus, which is specially designed for taking students who use wheelchairs out on school trips.

Despite this modification, the minibus can still be driven by anyone holding a normal full driving licence.

    I was sitting eating a bag of chips on the beach at Aldeburgh in brilliant sunshine on Saturday, listening to music from the Bandstand on the Beach as part of the Aldeburgh Arts Festival.  Two young musicians, who were part of the BBC Introducing initiative, were playing beautiful music and the setting was just idyllic – a backdrop of waves coming in and seagulls in a bright blue sky flying over the beach bandstand.  It was only half way through their set that I realised I used to teach the two musicians on stage!  They were Clarice Parrott and Simon Lucas Hughes – both ex-students of Hedi
