Congratulations to Year 4 pupil, E Schwark, who has won first prize in the IAPS iART 2019 competition.

Her painting was created using inks. She told us “What I love about art is that you can use your imagination. What I liked about the fish painting was using the inks and being able to create an imaginary underwater scene. I found it interesting to experiment with 3-D effects like the way the tentacles seem to go into the jellyfish. I liked using starbursts in my background and in my fish. Starbursts are when the colour in the inks explodes into another colour. I love all forms of art and enjoy making art at home and at school.”

Art teacher, Mrs Barratt said “E Schwark has been a star pupil, producing work of a very high standard and is always fully engaged in every project. She’s a talented child!”

Head of Art, Mr Patrick added “I am delighted to say that this is the first time we have entered a student in an IAPS Art competition and I am thrilled that our pupil has done so well, hopefully this will be the first of many for St Michael’s Prep. E Schwark is a great student with a very artistic eye and I’m sure she will have a great deal of success in the future.”

  • St Michael’s is a wonderful school. Fantastic teachers, a nurturing environment. It has suited our three children who are all very different in their academic and pastoral needs. Thank you.

  • We were struck by the warmth and kindness of everyone we met; pupils as well as staff. We believe in giving our son the right start and instilling in him the joy of learning and satisfaction from achievement. We can see this happening at St Michael’s

  • My daughter has had such a wonderful school life at St.Michael’s. We really couldn’t have asked for a better school for her in terms of academic life, extra-curricular activities and friendship groups. We still can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by and that she will soon be leaving!
