Bartlett School of Architecture Offers

Two Hampton Art students have received offers from the world ranking Bartlett School of Architecture.

Joe Ellwood and Rory Cariss were among 1400 applicants who went through a rigorous selection process in the hope of being offered one of the 100 places at the institution, which attracts students from across the globe.

The Bartlett is part of University College London and is renowned as one of the most influential, exciting and innovative architecture schools in the world.  It is listed as the second-best school of architecture in the world after MIT in Boston.

Both boys were delighted to hear that they have been offered conditional places. They were warmly congratulated by Hampton’s Head of Art, Mrs Karen Williams:

“This is an exceptional achievement and I am delighted for both Joe and Rory. The Bartlett School of Architecture has produced some of the world’s leading innovators in spatial design and eminent alumni include architects, as well as artists, film-makers, historians, writers, policymakers, journalists and politicians. Joe and Rory will receive an exceptional education in this field.”

Hampton School Chair of Governors, Mr Nigel Spooner, trained as an architect himself and says the boys should be very proud of themselves:

“ This is the first time a Hamptonian has been offered a place at The Bartlett School of Architecture and thus for two boys to get offers in the same year is tremendous. Rory and Joe’s work clearly impressed the selection panel and they, along with their teachers in the Art Department, deserve full recognition for this impressive achievement. “
