Sunday Times Prep School of the Year 2013-14

Fill This Space...!

The fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square has stood empty since being built in 1841; it was intended for an equestrian statue of William IV but this never got commissioned. Recently however, it has started to play an important part in the London art scene with proposals invited from artists who submit a design idea and may win to see their art work become reality. The Mayor of London is keen to get school age children involved as well and now runs an art competition for children to submit their ideas as to what should go on the empty stand. Mrs Earl is keen to submit some entries from Holy Cross – all of which will be published in an online ideas gallery – as well as the chance to win some fabulous prizes for the individual artist and her school…! The following age categories apply; 5 -7 years so if you are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, as well as 8 - 11 years which includes Year 3s up to Year 6s so if you are feeling at a loose end and want to challenge yourself, why not dream up a design?!

All NAMED entries on A4 to Mrs Earl by Friday 2nd.March to give her time to scan, upload and send off the work. They can be in any format – drawing, painting, collage even digital designs – and simply show a really great idea for a piece of public art! Think Nelson’s Column… the Angel of the North… Kingston’s Telephone Boxes… Wimbledon Centre Court’s Shopping Ladies…??!! There is lots more information at

Have fun girls, get creative please!
