Students at Magdalen College School have been engaged with Brawn on several projects.


Five of the school’s Year 11 Art group spent many hours working to produce a spectacular mural depicting the Teams’ GP car. The mural was then on full display in the High Street to greet Ross Brawn, Nick Fry and members of the Brawn workforce as they paraded through Brackley to the Civic Reception. The artists, Isabel Hazelby, India Bolton, Josie Brotherton, Lizzie Riley and Hayley Bodily, were also there too.


They were members of a large group of students representing the school to show their appreciation of the support Brawn has provided for many school projects. A number of them were interviewed by Banbury Sound for their coverage of the event.


Notably there were members of two project groups at the school who have been working directly with Brawn GP in recent months. Magdalen College School Racing Team had particular cause to acknowledge Brawn’s achievement. They have worked closely with Brawn engineers as part of a project to produce another winning racer. This one though, will compete in the Town’s Soapbox Derby in June 2010 rather than a Grand Prix.


The Young Consultants, student ‘voices’ of the exciting Creative Curriculum Project, have also enjoyed their liaison with Brawn. Indeed the Team will be hosting an activity and consultation event for students and parents at their prestigious Media Centre this week.


The Head Boy, Theo Perry, and Head Girl, Megan Brownrigg, were also there with other sixth formers. They expressed in their interview that not only their pride in representing the school at the event, but also in Brawn GP and Brackley. Brawn had done so much for the town and really put Brackley on the map.
