The Rectors’ Prize

At the start of term, one of our talented Year 13 painters was invited to paint her own version of Benjamin West’s ‘Nativity’ (1818) – to fill the space in the church, during the restoration of this masterly painting. A curved frame and board was carefully fashioned to provide a support for her image. The finished painting was installed in the church prior to the Prize Giving award evening, during which, she received the Rectors’ Prize. A souvenir bookmark, to commemorate the project, was distributed to all the guests at Prize Giving and the painting is still hanging proudly in the church.
