LATEST UPDATE:

For this third (and we are hopeful it will be the final) National Lockdown Higham is closed.

Currently all courses are suspended until Tuesday 2nd March at the earliest or until the National Lockdown period ends.

Refunds or credits will be offered to all Students on affected courses.

We ask both Tutors and Students of courses due to run during this period to assume their course is cancelled and to please hang tight whilst we sort things out.

We will try to communicate with everybody with a cancelled course, so please check your messages.

We will reinstate a part time weekday mornings skeleton staff in the Office in the week before we reopen.

All staff are now furloughed – a necessity at this juncture in order for us to benefit as much as we can from Government help until we can hit the ground running once again.

Thank you so much for your continued support and patience. Stay safe and healthy.

This situation will be reviewed on a week by week basis.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Updates will be posted on the website.

We wish you the safest of Christmases and remember, 2021 has to be better than 2020!

A Special Message from the Principal

It has been such a challenging year for everybody. The Higham Community is fighting on, determined to come out of this stronger once we are allowed to.

Thank you so much for all your patience and support – we are encouraged by the kind things many of you have said to us during this unprecedented time. I doubt whether there is anyone who has not been deeply affected by all this.

The main question people seem to be asking is “Will Higham ne OK?”. We can answer that confidently as a “Yes”, due to the knowledge that you, our loyal and tollerant students and tutors are chomping at the bit to return and resume activity. When that chance comes, we will take it with enormous gratitude for all the amazing sacrifices made by so many people on our behalf during this pandemic, and also in memory of those who will no longer be able to share in the joy that we have the priviledge to provide.

Thank you and STAY SAFE.

ALEX JAKOB WHITWORTH EXHIBITON

1st August 2020 to 31st January 2021

“As someone who lives amongst the countryside – I have always found inspiration in the stories, the shapes, the colours, the paths and the way we relate to the land around us. It is a sense of fascination and curiosity that bring me to express experience of travelling through the landscape, and a sense of place into my paintings; the temporal expressed in the spacial.” A.J.W.

LIONEL PLAYFORD EXHIBITION

ALEX JAKOB WHITWORTH EXHIBITON

1st August 2020 to 31st January 2021

 

“In this age of growing concern over our relationship with nature there has never been a better reason to connect with it by meditating on landscape through art. I have been making art about landscape for over 45 yers and this exhibition reflects deeply held desire to immerse myself in the outdoor weather-world and make images about it from sketches to piantings, collages and installations.” L.P.
