We are incredibly proud to have completed series of short films for our client St Faith’s School who have won the pre-prep/prep school of the year at the prestigious Tes (Times Education Supplement) Independent School Awards 2019.
According to the judges St Faith’s won the highly competitive pre-prep/prep school of the year category for our innovation, commitment to sustainability and “narrative of excellence in a number of key areas of school life”.
The judges continued: “The coeducational prep school is unique in placing Engineering at the core of the curriculum from age seven and offers training on how to teach the subject. Sport is a major part of school life – teams reached 20 national finals in 2017-18 – while all pupils learn at least one musical instrument. The school supports the Cambridgeshire Chess League and its nursing staff hosted a conference about mental health issues facing school-aged children, a first for the county”.
Lead judge Michael Abraham said: “St Faith’s narrowly missed out in 2018 with a magnificent entry but in the great fabled Bruce tradition of try, try and try again, they have this year gone one better. This is an extraordinary entry and a most worthy winner”.
Headmaster Nigel Helliwell commented, “Clearly this is fantastic news for St Faith’s and a much-deserved reward for the outstanding work of all members of staff. It is the strength, cohesiveness and commitment of our staff, working together so effectively with a common vision, that has led to the School’s considerable success in recent times. Every single member of staff has contributed to this wonderful achievement”.
William George, Director of OH! Films said; ”Filming at the school is always a joy and it’s wonderful to see the hard work of the teachers and staff rewarded”.
