Photography Competition


Despite there being three categories in this Easter's photo competition the overwhelming subject chosen was nature.

It seems in lockdown that we have had time to really look at our surroundings and fully appreciate Einsteins's words:
'Look deep in to nature and you will understand everything better'

You can view all of the entries in our video below, or view the winners lower down this page.

This has been the hardest year ever to judge. We have had far more entries and all the photos were worth showing. All the boys who entered should be proud of their efforts and of the pleasure they have given everyone by contributing to the online exhibition.

As always we were looking for interpretation of the topic, framing, light and that split second which makes a decent picture into a very good one.

Thank you to everyone who entered and special thanks to Mr Francis who put together the exhibition videos.
