Animation Club

Our very popular animation club made its debut at Faraday last year.

In the space of 4 terms, our club's films have been selected for a range of festivals and competitions.


The Secret of the Lighthouse has been chosen for inclusion by the Cartoon Club Festival and is also a finalist in the Out of the Can Festival.

Meanwhile, our film, Donatello, has been shared online by leading Art Historian Andrew Graham-Dixon as, "Quite simply one of the best Art History programmes we have seen this year".

Our Spring Term film, The Attack of Plastic Pollution, is a fantastical story imagining how the famous broadcaster and environmentalist, David Attenborough, tackles plastic pollution in the oceans.

In the Summer Term, to celebrate our school's 10th anniversary, our club produced a film about the life of our namesake - the esteemed scientist Michael Faraday.

During the Autumn Term in 2019, Faraday's After-School Animation Club created an short film based on Jane Goodall’s life - 'Jane Goodall and Her Chimps.


Our most recent film made in the Spring Term, '2222', gives us a look into what the future may look like, including underwater communities, robots and an important mission!
