New portrait for Tim Haynes unveiled

Former Headmaster is commemorated in portrait hanging in the Barton Science Centre
A portrait of former Headmaster Tim Haynes, who retired in 2018, was unveiled at an event at Tonbridge School in November.

The portrait was created by respected artist Keith Breeden, having been selected by Mr Haynes after viewing his portrait of the late Richard Kennedy during a visit to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition.

Breeden, a self-taught artist, previously had a successful career as a graphic artist and worked on album covers for the likes of Pink Floyd and Roxy Music, before perusing his passion of portraiture.

Mr Haynes attended ten, six-hour sittings over a period of nine months in order for the portrait to be completed.

Appropriately, the portrait now takes pride of place in the Barton Science Centre. Our new, state-of-the-art facility was formally opened in March 2019 and owed much to Tim’s vision, drive and initiative.

We would like to thank the Old Tonbridgian Society for its contributions to the project, which have allowed the school to commemorate Tim Haynes' twelve years of service to Tonbridge in such a special way.
