Meeting the Duchess of Cambridge!


Duchess of Cambridge10 students from Year 9 had the lucky opportunity to meet Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge on the 12th February. Last October, the 1851 Trust ran an art project to paint a mural on the BAR construction site hoardings which our students took part in.

The school and the artists were all invited back to meet the Duchess and to show her their work. The Duchess added her own touch to the mural with a painting of the team’s AC45 – the dramatic, high-speed foiling boats that will contest the America’s Cup World Series in Portsmouth in July 2015 and 2016.
