Bloods Corridor walls to get an upgrade

Timeline to be installed for Bradfield 175

Hanging in a corner at the end of Bloods Corridor since Bradfieldian Samira Tremiño (I 98-00) left Bradfield in the year 2000, a framed pastel study has been brightening up the wall beside Bloods Classroom 2 for nearly 25 years.

Samira did the artwork during her time at Bradfield. She said, “I saw it once hanging there when I came to visit many years ago and it was really touching, but I had no clue it was still there!”

Samira studied Art for her A-levels at Bradfield and loved it. She said “The space down by the creek was always so charming. It’s been so long, I actually don’t remember the name of my art teacher. [Head of Art at the time was James Nairne]. Mr Collins was my House Master during my first year at Palmer House and he was wonderful, I really respected him.”

Samira has been been living in New York for the last 16 years working in Fashion. She started in London at Mulberry designing bags and then moved to New York to work at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and now she is the Senior Director for Handbags at Tory Burch. Samira added “Time flies, but I always have such fond memories of my time at Bradfield.  It was very special.”

The artwork is one of many around the College done by various student artists during their time at Bradfield, but this piece will return to Samira this summer. The wall you see below opposite the windows down Bloods Corridor is to be covered with a historic Timeline of the period 1850 to 2025 next year to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the College. The Timeline will be available for everyone to enjoy when they visit in the future and will help bring the history of the College’s first 175 years to life for prospective parents and pupils on tours, current students and staff and alumni who visit us in the future. We hope you will come back to Bradfield in 2025 to see how things have changed since you left.
