Congratulations to Izzy Barr, a student at St Swithun’s School, came second alongside her father in Channel 4’s Lego Masters.
The television programme offers Lego enthusiasts the chance to demonstrate their creativity and building skills in a bid to become the Lego Masters champion.
A fan of the show, the 14-year-old was picked after writing to producers. She was invited to audition with her dad and build-partner Stuart.
A Lego enthusiast since the age of seven, Izzy says that ‘building with Lego is my way of relaxing, and is also my main creative outlet. I like to tell stories with my builds, and I can let my imagination run wild. Even when my father and I are competing against the clock and the other teams on the show, I still find it all so much fun’.
Izzy and Stuart performed well in the first three episodes, and her boarding house at St Swithun’s is hosting viewing parties with Lego man-shaped cakes and jelly for each episode. Headmistress Jane Gandee said ‘It’s really great to see the boarding community come together to support Izzy during Lego Masters, and we are all very proud of her achievements. We are looking forward to seeing how far she can go in the competition’.
Izzy and Stuart competed with the support of her classmates at St Swithun’s, who held viewing parties.
