Each year we feature an Art department student, or a student’s work, which places them in the category of Gifted and Talented. In 2013 Oliver Bradford emerged as the most original and talented student and one who throughout his education here displayed a determination to fulfil his potential.
Oliver Bradford has attended MPW for the past two years and has responded to the demands of the A-level syllabus with confidence and ability. Oliver studied two subjects within the department (Graphic Communication and Photography) to a consistently high standard.
