New Art Mural enhances the East Block Building

Posted on Oct 02, 2017

The outside of Kingsmead’s East Block building has been enhanced with a great new piece of artwork created by students and staff.

The large 8ft x 20ft mural was constructed, drawn and painted during Challenge Week in July this year by the Art Department and Year 8 students (now in Year 9) who selected Art as one of their GCSE options.  The mural was inspired by Kingsmead's students and staff who were visiting Zambia at the time on an exchange trip.  The mural is a reminder of our connections with partner schools in Zambia and with the aim of bringing a little bit of Zambian colour and pattern into our school environment. 

Our thanks go to all the students involved in the project, Miss Lake our Art Teacher and to SCForecourts Ltd who very kindly erected the mural on our behalf.
