A forward-thinking secondary school has struck up a relationship with a London university after impressing them with their charity’s work.
Painter and University of East London (UEL) lecturer Alexis Harding visited Redden Court School in Cotswold Road, Harold Wood on Friday with 12 fine art students.
They were treated to an art department presentation about the aims of Rainbow Nation, the school’s charity, and even discussed joint projects.
Mr Harding said: “I was blown away visiting the art department! The students beginnings into the area of art and design were really intuitive and the rooms were wonderful.”
The university is now planning to continue its links with the school.

“Fine art practise at university is a combination of academic study and being able to think on your feet and exploit opportunities,” explained Mr Harding. “Something we saw in action through the printing press at Redden Court!”
Meg Ryan, Head of art and Rainbow Nation director, added: “We are very excited at this development. To work in partnership with a university will have many benefits for our students.”
