Banksy the Otter Unveiled

Banksy, the Abbey otter, decorated by students at the school, is now on display by the main pedestrian gate. Do have a look next time you are at school.


He is one of 44, metre-high otter sculptures forming an art trail around Farnham to celebrate the return of wild otters to the River Wey. Most have involved collaboration between artists, charities, businesses, schools and other community groups. Our otter was sponsored by Farnham Hedgehogs and decorated by students under the direction of Mrs Smith.

There is a map of the trail and copies will be available from Farnham Town Council Offices (South Street) and other locations throughout the town together with an entry form for a competition which challenges visitors to identify all the otters on the route. The trail will be in place until the end of June and forms part of the 2018 Farnham Walking Festival. Following an appearance in the Farnham Carnival, the otters will be auctioned with all the proceeds split between the town mayor’s chosen charities, The Woodlarks Centre and Gostry Brightwells Community Centre. Further details will be available shortly on the website:
