Last year DOLPH were approached by the staff at Sunnyhill Primary School to come up with a project as part of their Art Week at the end of Term 3. As the idea developed, a week became a term, and the project expanded to involve the whole school – 500 children from Reception to Year 6, culminating in an exhibition of the finished work.
More and more we become familiar with the concept of Forest School in Streatham. Schools offer it as a complement of classwork or after school clubs and more families prefer activities in nature for their children because they intuitively know that stressed or unhealthy children have more difficulties in learning and growing.
When the children of Sunnyhill Primary School unanimously request for more art, the staff listened and ‘Art Week’ was born. This term the school have developed a visual arts project working with DOLPH, a local artist-run initiative. Since 2014 DOLPH has been staging a programme of exhibitions and talks from its space behind Sainsbury’s Local in Streatham Hill. Over the years. DOLPH’s Natasha Kahn and Paul Cole have worked with both prominent artists, as well as emerging talents, and the project at Sunnyhill will see them working with their youngest artists yet.

South Bank Engineering UTC will be a new arrival on the educational scene in Lambeth. Opening in Brixton in 2016, the UTC will deliver a specialist curriculum with an engineering specialism to students aged 14-19. According to Dan Cundy, the Principal Designate, ‘there is a very real skills gap in the engineering sector, particularly in London.
