A huge congratulations to Bailey (L6S1) for winning the internal heat for ARTiculation 2021 with his presentation on the painting Atlantic Civilisation by Fougeron.  

ARTiculation is the Roche Court Educational Trust’s national and international public speaking initiative, championing the appreciation and discussion of art. It enables students to develop their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and reactions to the visual world. 

The standard of all the entrances received was extremely high this year and our judges, Mr Wheeler and Mrs Nicholson were very impressed with the quality and breadth of the subject matter discussed. The passion with which everyone spoke was inspirational. Well done to all that entered. 

Bailey will now go forward to represent the School at the ARTiculation heats hosted online by The Barber Institute of Arts on Thursday 11 February. He will be competing against six other schools from the region to win a place in the semi-finals.
