School Winners


About the School Roundel Competition

The School Competition is an exciting opportunity for budding artists and historians to design a unique circular stained glass artwork to be presented to a former Lord Mayor of London.

We invite students to submit an original design on paper. The winning design will be made into a roundel by a professional stained-glass artist and will be presented to Sir Charles Bowman, the 690th Lord Mayor of London.

The pupil with the winning design will receive £100 to deposit in their savings account. The winner’s school will receive £200-worth of school art materials.

My creation is all about looking south where the London Bridge dwells.

I’ve put my setting here where there are many boats travelling (the Lord Mayor’s favourite thing). London Bridge is a very popular place where tourists like to explore.

The Lord Mayor runs London so I’ve put a sailor hat on London Bridge, to rule over the boat of London.

The boat going through is called ‘The Jeffery’ as his first name is Jeffery. I’ve written his name as on the sheet and put 2018. Clemence Woolford

St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

Clemence’s design has brought a playful humour to the competition and indeed to the Lord Mayors interests. Her design and description were well thought out and engaging. The judges particularly liked the personal elements: the sailor’s hat resting on London Bridge and the boat (named ‘The Jeffery’ after him) going through it.
