On Thursday 8 March, the Art Department invited the Middle School and their parents, to celebrate and support, the Big Draw. The Big Draw was established in 2000 and is now the worlds largest drawing festival. With Mr Taylor, participants were encouraged to draw around their hands in a way that made them look 3Dimensional. The continuous line drawing was surprisingly therapeutic and the end result is an impressive 10 metre long piece of artwork. Blessed with the sunshine Miss Bartlett was able to draw and paint the beautiful Danes Hill landscape out on the balcony of L12. Additionally, Miss Reeves organised an art trail where pupils were challenged to locate eight totem poles around the school. The art trail ends on Thursday 15 March, so there is plenty of time to submit your entry to your form teacher with the chance of winning a prize. Mrs Weston ran an amazing stop motion animation workshop using the iPads. This was a great opportunity for the pupils to utilise many skills regarding new and advancing technology as well as having lots of fun in the process. The event ended with a fantastic raffle, a beautiful cake was presented for first prize from Cobham Cakes, wonderful art packs were awarded also. A big thank you to all parents for your kind generosity in helping us raise £296 for the Leatherhead Youth Project. The message from the art department is Keep on Drawing.

About Danes Hill
Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
- School Life
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
