Renaissance Day, Thursday 6 July - Report and Pictures

Here's a taste of what happened on our latest Renaissance Day on Thursday 6 July.

Our termly Renaissance Days are a chance for boys to go off timetable and delve into subjects and experiences they would not normally have an opportunity to engage in fully. 


Holy architecture. Students studied sacred spaces and learned about the architecture of holy buildings. Alpha, Daniel, Adam and Ali spent the day planning the construction of a mosque, and completed a full model by the end of the day.

Renaissance (3)


Cultural expression through dance. Students learned about cultural forms of expression through dance. They practised movements inspired by Zouk music and dance. This was inspired by the Brazilian lambada but originated in the French speaking areas of the Caribbean. This form of dance combines salsa, meringue, and reggae dance with a speedier beat. In fact, translated from French Creole the word zouk means party.

Renaissance (2)


Religious migrations. Students studied the religious migrations of the puritans to the USA. In this picture they are calculating the amount of materials and supplies they can transport with them to the New World.  After this, students built their colonies and navigated them through scenarios such as hostile climate and disease. They were also presented with the ethical issues surrounding colonisation, particularly with regard to the treatment of Native Americans.

Renaissance (1)


Graphene solutions. Boys designed a product made from the super material graphene that could potentially solve a world issue, such as lack of clean water. Graphene is the world's first 2D material and is 200 time stronger than steel and also flexible. At the end of the design stage, the pupils had to present their ideas to the rest of the groups.

Renaissance (5)
