We’re delighted to share this year’s Christmas film ‘The Gift of Wings’, a Dragon QUEST production created by our very own talented Dragons as part of our award-winning extra-curricular enrichment programme.
Acclaimed British actor Paul Chahidi (OD 1982) is the brilliant voice behind the film, and the film’s soundtrack was specially composed by our Music Department here at the Dragon School.
Help us make a difference this Christmas, #GiveWings to new young Dragons through our Transformational Bursary Programme!
Over 100 children have been given wings since the launch of the Dragon’s Transformational Bursary Programme, with huge thanks to the generosity of our community.
Make a difference this Christmas by supporting Dragon Bursaries.
‘It was a huge pleasure and such a privilege to be involved with the ‘Gift of Wings’ film and to be working alongside all these talented young Dragons.
I love the film’s message ‘be kind and take the initiative’ – such Dragon qualities!’
Paul Chahidi (OD 1982)
‘Becoming a Dragon laid the foundations for me to follow my aspirations.
It taught me to be the best I could be and showed me that I was able to overcome challenges regardless of my background.
My bursary allowed me the chance to discover my potential. A unique gift that helped make me the person I am today and unlocked my opportunity to excel.’
Milly Taylor (OD 2012)
THE MAKING OF
This year’s Dragon Quest Production was created by Dragons for Dragons. From the hands behind the camera to the hands behind the shadows, our Dragon Quest filmmakers scouted locations, dressed the set, filmed the action and even featured themselves! The film starred courageous young Dragons and was filmed within our Dragon Boarding Houses.
This year’s music was written and performed by our Music Department here at the Dragon School:
Music by William Morris
Guitar and Music Production by Jonny Race
Percussion by Jonathan Morgan
Clarinet by David Smith

In 1886, it was parents’ faith and financial support which enabled the fulfilment of an extraordinary vision – to found a school that would inspire and nurture each child’s unique gifts.
