Head Michael Pennington has been accused of making the school's famous Grade II* listed Fenwick-Harrison Memorial Chapel look like a 'conference hall for used car salesmen' - after replacing the iconic pews with foldaway blue chairs.
It would be about the garish blue chairs digging into our spines because of the slouch brought on by years of sitting in metal chairs just like these, in a grey stone building just like this, five days a week, nine months a year.
In this private space, I finished reading the last few pages of Michelle Obama's "Becoming" and perused chapters of Haruki Murakami's "Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki." Sitting in one of the estate's iconic cerulean blue chairs reading or scribbling had become a cherished pre-dusk routine.
Seated in a circle on the same blue chairs used in prison therapy sessions, the viewer has the feeling of participating in this forceful experience as the prisoners, guided by the staff, articulate remorse, disgust and sadness as they come to understand their own actions.
