Art student reaches Semi-Final

Art student reaches Semi-Final


Year 12 fine Art student Alex West Reaches the Semi-Final Round of the ARTiculate Competition

We are delighted that Alex has reached the semi-final round of the ARTiculate competition. She was selected for her talk on Ed Ruscha’s ‘The Music from the Balconies - 1984’. The event was held at the Courtauld Institute of Art and Alex was well supported by her father, several RES students, Mr Berriman and Mr Field. The adjudicator -The Courtauld’s Dr Barnaby Wright- gave some of his reasons for selecting Alex in his positive feedback. He was impressed with “the quality, approach and analysis of the presentation”. He also praised Alex for her “choice of subject matter and for her insightful, passionate and personal response whilst engaging with the complexity of the work and unlocking it for the audience”.

Alex will now compete in the semi-final round which takes place at the National Gallery on February 24th -with a chance to reach the final in March.

The ARTiculate competition at RES

ARTiculate is a national public speaking competition run by the Roche Court Education Institute since 2006. Over 3000 sixth form students from 5 UK REGIONS were involved in the competition in 2014. Alex competed against another nine students from the London area in this quarter-final. ARTiculate has already proved to be a fantastic artistic and critical experience for RES students. Participants of the competition take turns to present a 5-10 minute talk on an artwork of their choice, followed by questions about their chosen area. Alex was selected earlier in 2016 from a group including four other RES students (Elizabeth Ghalustians, Emilia Lamkin, Elena Male and Lana Robinson), who competed in the RES heat for the competition.

The competition culminates in March at an education Symposium held at Cambridge University. The Roche Court describes the Symposium as: ‘designed to engage students in looking at and talking about art and architecture, as well as offering an insight into university life.

The day includes:
-A key note lecture presented by an art historian
-Tours of the university art collections given by University of Cambridge undergraduates
-A university fair
-Q & A with the Tutors for Admissions and Access

A group of sixth form students including Alex are looking forward to being driven to the final with Mr Berriman in the RES minibus.

--Good luck at the National Alex!—

Donation from RAG Week

Donation from RAG Week


Rydens Enterprise School RES Sixth Form Rag Week

The Sixth Form Student Leadership Team, Mrs Blackiston and Mrs Payne proudly handing over the money raised during RAG week to Nina Malyon from Walton and Hersham Foodbank


Students from RES Sixth Form College were delighted to meet Nina Malyon from Walton and Hersham Foodbank in mid-December to hand over the proceeds from their fundraising activities over the term. The school carries out a range of fundraising activities over the year and students from the Sixth Form were keen to support such a worthwhile local charity.

Just before half term the Sixth Form Student Leadership Team organised a packed and vibrant RAG week offering games, competitions and food and drink to entice their fellow students to part with money for a good cause. Bushtucker Rydens and the servant auction were particular highlights and really captured the interest of the student body. The week was a phenomenal success and raised just short of £800.

In the build up to the Christmas break, students organised and delivered hampers to be distributed to those in need at a time of the year when struggling to make ends meet is even more keenly felt. Students and staff worked together to contribute items for the hampers and the Sixth Form students played the role of Santa in delivering them ready for the festive season.

The students themselves chose Walton and Hersham Foodbank to fundraise for. As a local charity that helps thousands of people each year, the students were keen to support the community of which it is a part and the fantastic work they do. The work of the Foodbank is increasing and support such as that provided by the school goes some way to help it continue to support those who need it most. The combination of food and monetary donations are vital to the charity.

The school and charity hope that in working together they can help to greater support the local community and that this is the start of an ongoing relationship with the foodbank.
