World Record

Our school took part in an exciting new project, designed by The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Art, encouraging all young people in the UK aged 4-16 to create a self portrait. The project was called Face Britain and was launched officially on 14 September 2011 by the charity and a host of celebrity Patrons with a message of support from HRH The Prince of Wales.

 All the portraits uploaded to the online gallery will form part of special celebratory events in 2012 during HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year and the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The portraits were used as individual pixels in a much larger montage image of HM The Queen, this image was projected onto Buckingham Palace so that all UK children had the chance to be part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations! In addition, the portraits were screened on BBC Big Screens in city centres across the UK.

The children were incredibly excited at the prospect of having their face beamed onto Buckingham Palace. Also their contribution could help form one of the largest art installations to date and break the Guinness World Record for ‘most artists working on the same art installation’.

During art lessons the children created self portraits which were so varied and expressive that we decided to create a mosaic of them and have a permanent tribute to HM The Queen in school.

St Cuthbert's entered the '2013 Guiness Book of World Records' for our participation inthe largest ever art installation.

Living and Working in Leicestershire

In the Heart of England - Residents of Leicestershire enjoy the best of everything
From refreshing and beautiful countryside and personable market towns to vibrant city living, Leicestershire offers a distinctive and high quality of life that will suit all lifestyles
Leicestershire is a beautiful county at the heart of England, within the developing National Forest.  It is a county where you can discover completely unspoilt villages and market towns, open countryside and panoramic views with rocky summits and secluded valleys.
Leicestershire has a wide variety of attractions including Bosworth Battlefield, where the course of English history changed dramatically, Snibston Discovery Park, which recalls our industrial past, and the National Space Centre.
Loughborough, in the north of the County is at the forefront of Information Technology and Loughborough University is also the national headquarters for many sports in the UK.  A number of Olympic teams will be training at Loughborough University in preparation for the 2012 Games in London, including, among others, the British Swimming Team, the British Triathlon Team, the elite British Athletes and the English Women’s Football Team.
The jet engine was invented in Lutterworth, in the south of the County, while Hinckley in the west was where the hosiery and footwear industries evolved.  Ashby-de-la-Zouch, in the north-west, and Market Harborough, in the south-east, are two very attractive, historical market towns.  Melton Mowbray, in the north-east, is a rural market town famous for the pork pie and for Stilton cheese.
Cosmopolitan and cultured, historic but futuristic, Leicester in the centre of the County is nothing if not varied, with its strong cultural diversity, excellent entertainment, night-life and restaurants.  The newly re-developed centre of the City offers a wide range of shopping opportunities, from the largest permanent outdoor market in Europe to the extensive Highcross shopping centre.
Leicestershire is well served by many transportation networks.  Four motorways (M1, M69, M42 and M6) run through the County, and there are regular trains to London, Nottingham, Birmingham and the North.  For international travel East Midlands Airport is located in the north of the County, and Birmingham Airport is also easily accessible
