Bancroft’s Art at The View
Once again, The View, Rangers Road in Chingford was the home of our Sixth Form Art exhibition.
A very successful private show was held on Friday 13 May for pupils, parents, staff and friends. Not only did the visitors get a chance to admire the wide range of artwork produced by our very talented students, but they also were entertained by music from some of our musicians, which Head, Mary Ireland, described as “the icing on the artistic cake!. All visitors were in agreement about the high standard of work on display confirming that many of the pieces produced by these young artists would sit comfortably in any gallery displaying contemporary work. The pupils had worked very hard to complete work for the exhibition and Alan Ford, Head of Art, said “To be able to showcase the work in such a beautiful venue, was an opportunity we just couldn’t miss.” In addition, pieces by members of staff from the art department were on display.
The impressive range of work is enhanced by the venue; I was thrilled at the professionalism of the students’ work and proud of all they have achieved.Mary Ireland, Head
Deputy Head, Marwan Mikdadi, described the show as “spectacular” with artwork which “challenged the senses and imagination.”
