Diversity of Dragons
A Royal Residence

eNews |

The Dragon is incredibly proud of ODs continuing to reach for the sun and who, in doing so, have become hugely successful in a wide range of fields. From writing Blackwell’s Children’s Book of the Year like Robin Stevens (OD 2001) to winning the Grand National like Sam Waley-Cohen (OD 1995), capturing snow leopards on camera like Dan O’Neil (OD 2005), and developing life-saving apps like Michael Dent (OD 2002), the diversity of our Dragons is testimony to the character and ambition encouraged at the School, demonstrating the breadth of opportunity a Dragon Education provides. Scroll down for the second feature in our Diversity of Dragons series …


Freddy Paske (OD 1999) is an award-winning figurative artist who, most recently, has been Artist-in-Residence during the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. From pottery with Ma Sturt to painting and print-making with Mr Heptonstall, Freddy takes a moment to recall how his time at the Dragon shaped his current career as an artist …

Freddy’s recent Exhibition, Lasting Reflections, was a sell-out show! Thanks to all of you that visited Freddy on Percy Street and showed your support.
