Sixth Form students attend the British Film Institute

On Friday 8th March, the French Year 12 and Year 13 students went to the British Film Institute for a day of cinematographic analysis. They were told about the chronology of the major French film industry, and where the ‘Nouvelle Vague’ fitted. They also had the chance to learn about the origins of this phenomenon, as well as its original concepts and techniques. Once able to identify those, the most valuable exercise was then to recognise the influence of this ‘Nouvelle Vague’ in more films, putting in parallel classic ‘Nouvelle Vague’ films and more contemporary ones. 

In the afternoon, as it was the International Women’s Day, the students watched Cléo de 5 à 7, a classic tale of self discovery and rebirth.

All students benefited from the best possible exposure to cinema technique analysis, giving them the edge for the cinema essay of their future writing paper.

Quelle bonne et productive journée!

Sports Day was highly competitive and so much fun for all involved. Events included track, field, fun relays and our favourite event Tug of War. Great way to finish the term! 😃 Photos courtesy of Ali Kittermaster. Gallery will be available from Monday.

Cranbrook 1st beat the OC’s in their last match of the season by 4 runs. What a brilliant game, clearly enjoyed by all. Good luck to the OC’s in your next few games. Well done and thank you to all our Year 13 Leavers, particularly Cam, Piers and The Laver lads. 🏏💪🏆
