This is Gresham’s


This is Gresham’s from Gresham’s

Norwich based, BAFTA winning and EMMY nominated film maker Rob Whitworth has created a flow motion film for Gresham’s.

Rob’s accomplishments span from the title sequence for the BBC FIFA 2018 World Cup coverage, to the city scenes in Planet Earth II. His unique flow motion works are instantly identifiable, with gripping perspectives that reveal locations in a powerful and compelling manner.

Rob’s flow motion takes you on an insightful journey through Gresham’s beautiful 200 acre grounds, exploring the outstanding facilities.

Douglas Robb, Gresham’s Headmaster said “Gresham’s enjoys an excellent setting surrounded by rolling countryside and just four miles from the breathtaking North Norfolk coast. Rob has done a superb job in portraying the incredibly important space we can offer every pupil as they discover their own talents and find where their interests lie.”

One focus within the film is Gresham’s outdoor activity centre. The centre includes high ropes, low ropes and assault courses, with the centrepiece being the 25m-high Bourdillon Tower. Named after Gresham’s alumnus and mountaineer, Tom Bourdillon, the climbing tower provides access to the high ropes and a 200-metre zip wire. The flow motion also highlights Gresham’s status as an All-Steinway School, showing a pupil playing one of the unparalleled pianos.

Soon, the school will be able to add a state-of-the-art STEAM building to its offering due to a £19 million donation from Sir James Dyson, Founder of Dyson and Gresham’s alumnus. The Dyson Building will be a new centre for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education, located at the heart of the Senior School
