A little bit of Hollywood comes to Stanmore

Our vision says that we are committed to purposeful and irresistible learning where our children are inspired to thrive and be the best that they can be.

This week we really went the extra mile to achieve this, inviting a Hollywood production designer into school. He is working on some incredibly well known films that I know your KS2 children will be excited to share with you. Theo even got to try on one of the costumes.

He shared his experiences with the children – growing up and attending school in Hampshire and using his hobby and skill of drawing to gradually build an amazing career for himself which takes him all over the world. He described his own resilience, one of our keys for success, coping when a drawing that he is particularly proud of doesn’t make the final cut. His message to the children was: ‘follow your dreams because you really can achieve anything.’ I was really proud of our KS2 children who showed respect by listening intently and asking some really interesting questions.
