As you will know from our previous newsletter articles our Product Design A level students have been taking part in the Royal Opera House National Schools Challenge.

The Royal Opera House's national Design Challenge is a hands-on design skills programme, to drive skills development and progression for students studying at KS4 & KS5.Teachers have free access to four design pathways: Set, Costume, Hair, Wigs and Makeup, and Marketing. Each pathway is designed to improve students’ creative problem-solving, build understanding of career pathways, explore the connections between STEM and the arts, and develop students’ empathy skills needed to design for an audience and other user groups. The national Design Challenge is designed for teachers leading courses at Levels 2-4 including but not restricted to GCSE, vocational or A-Level Art & Design pathways, or as an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), inclusive of SEND and home schooling.

We are delighted to announce that Joint Winner of Design Challenge (Secondary) is Diyora Sodikova for our Year 12 class, this is an amazing achievement but we would also like to give a huge congratulations to all the students who took on the Design Challenge this year in Year 12 who have produced a very high standard of work.

The exhibition of the Winning and Highly Commended work will be on public display in the Linbury Foyer at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden from 8 June 2023 to 21 June 2023.
