Congratulations to former Cadet RSM, William Clark, on his appointment, as an Officer, serving with the 2nd Battalion Royal Gurkha Rifles.

William has just completed his second term, at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He will joining his new regiment on the completion of his final term, and subsequent specialist training, at the internationally renowned Infantry Battle School, Brecon.

William was an outstanding cadet, who justifiably was awarded RSM status during his time with the Combined Cadet Force.  This accolade has only been awarded twice, during my tenure, and it comes as no surprise to me to see William continue to excel in the Regular Army, following a successful stint as an Officer, with the 3rd Battalion Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment.

Being offered a commission, with one of the most revered regiments in the Infantry is an honour indeed, and, is one only bestowed upon the very best Officer cadets to pass through Sandhurst.

We all wish him every success, when he takes up his command, and hope that he might consider coming in to enthuse the next generation of cadets very soon.

Major A. R. Jones

"Thank you so much for the opportunity to join St Edmunds School with the Life Drawing session. We had a fantastic time in exploring different techniques drawing from the life model using a broad range of media. Rufus provided exceptional 1:1 tuition and made our students feel at ease throughout the session, despite the challenging nature of the tasks and this being their initial experience with Life Drawing. Students were proud of their outcomes and left the session buoyed and confident from the session. Having taken part in the session last year, I was keen to utilise this opportunity again; not only for our students to help develop their skill-set and portfolio but also for continued professional development. I firmly believe that sharing experiences such as this are reaffirming and progressive with pedagogical practice. It was wonderful to speak to other department leads from other schools in the area and gain their perspective on the current climate within Art and Design teaching. We thoroughly appreciate being invited again this year to your school and I look forward to the prospect of building upon these links further. Archbishops School
