    The Three Bears Statue

    The ‘bear and its cubs’ statue in front of the newly built Junior School was officially unveiled on the 5th February 2004 by local author Celia Rees, in the presence of sculptor Matthew Lane-Sanderson and Headmaster Ed Halse.  Warwick Junior School pupil Thomas Ashworth and Warwick School pupil Thomas Gayle were also chosen to take part in this photo opportunity.

    The statue was commissioned by Matthew Lane-Sanderson, and took months of preparation.  Wire mesh formed the original structure of the bears, which was then built up with layer upon layer of clay. 

    There was much excitement when the completed statue was unveiled and it is still a firm favourite with every Warwick School boy today.
