The Prime Minister and Papplewick Pupil, Hans

Papplewick budding artists enjoyed meeting Theresa May at Maidenhead Library on Friday 15th March, during the presentation of prizes for the Litter Artist Competition 2018/19

launching Maidenhead Matters Plastic Heroes Exhibition.

The competition was open to all primary first middle and preparatory schools (state and independent) in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.  Pupils from different

age categories were asked to take clean items of litter or recycling material from home and create a piece of artwork - either flat or 3D sculpture.

Prize winners from Papplewick Jake Rollason (Group 3 category - years 5-6) and Hans Patel (Group 4 - years 6-7) were delighted to meet the PM despite her busy Westminster schedule. Prizes were presented by Lord John Randall, the Prime Minister's Environmental Advisor.   Jake designed an innovative litter bug creation from sweet wrappers, whilst Hans presented a mythical creation made out of recycled materials.  Prizes included an annual subscription to the National Geographic magazine.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said. " We are of course Eco Friendly at Papplewick, and this was a great opportunity for our boys to be creative whilst remember the importance of taking responsibility for our rubbish !"

Papplewick School, Ascot,  About Papplewick....  ....

 Papplewick is a day, weekly, and full boarding preparatory school for around 200 boys between the ages of 6 and 13. Situated in 15 acres of land opposite Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, Papplewick has an excellent record for academic achievement and feeds many of the UK’s top independent senior schools including Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Wellington, Stowe and Bradfield.  

In the last two years the school has maintained its academic record, gaining no less than 26 awards to top independent schools, including three King’s Scholarships to Eton. Through its strong commitment to sports, the school also builds skills of teamwork, sportsmanship and responsibility.

As well as academic, sporting and cultural excellence, Papplewick aims to provide boys with the confidence and security they need to fulfil their potential, and the school strives to promote enthusiasm for life, contribution to the community and kindness to others amongst all its pupils. 

A report by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in 2013 remarks that relationships between pupils and teachers: ‘are an outstanding strength of the school and are seminal in creating the strong sense of a mutually supportive and trusting community.’

Please note the entrance to Papplewick is on A332 which is different from SATNAV instructions.
