OVs in King’s Showcase Collaboration 

We have absolutely loved the recent videos taken around school showcasing all the different teaching departments and what they have to offer. This was very much a King’s collaboration as not one but two OVs were involved in the filming of these videos, Founder & Creative Director at video production company Swift Collective, Ben Martyn-Smith (S 09-16) and drone pilot and videographer, Callum Jacob (Cl 09-16). Callum is pictured here filming the English  department with Andrew Maund (Hon OV).OV Callum Jacob (centre)

They have managed to capture a sense of the nurturing and invigorating environment King’s provides and it is wonderful to hear so many staff share their passion for their subject areas and the pupil’s enthusiasm for what they learn. There are videos for every subject including Music, History and Politics, Chemistry, Modern Languages, Mathematics, Rowing, CCF and Design Technology to name just a few.

As well as subject films, there are also videos on the library at King’s and on the Learning Skills department. The latter features a section given by OV William Lloyd (Cr 13-20) about his King’s story and how the Learning Skills provision he received has given him skills for life.

It was great to spot some more OVs in the videos too with sporting stars Sophie Le Marchand (Cl 96-07) and Cerys Preston (Cr 12-19) getting a mention in the PE and Sport film as well an appearance from OV and  King’s teacher Harriet Lacey (Br 93-04) in the Biology film. Harriet says she loved biology at King’s so much she came back to teach the subject following her career as a vet!

They really are fantastic and inspiring videos so do check them out on the King’s YouTube page here to see if you spot any familiar faces!
