Every year Badminton School hosts the Mary Fedden Commemorative Art Competition for local Junior Schools. Last night we held the online exhibition of the final artwork.

Mary Fedden attended Badminton School in the mid 1920s and went on to become the first female tutor in the Painting School at the Royal College of Art, her pupils included David Hockney. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows throughout the UK and still inspires and delights people today. We are delighted to host the competition in memory of the exceptional creative achievements of this Old Badmintonian.
