  • Tuesday 19 March 2019 From the Headmaster.... It was good to see that the rain and wind did not deter prospective parents from visiting the school for Open Morning earlier today. We had a very good number of visitors who were expertly guided around the facilities by our tour guides from Years 5, 6, and 8 . My thanks to them for being super ambassadors for the school. Their insight and enthusiasm was great.
  • Monday 11 March 2019 From the Headmaster.... As I don my wellies and make my way out to the field to enjoy the Year 3s' flagship sporting fixture of the year, the Tag Rugby and Netball Festival, I am reminded of the busy and varied nature of our children's lives. This afternoon, most of the rest of the school will enjoy a preview performance of the Years 4 and 5 neolithic extravaganza, Rock Bottom, ahead of the main performance this evening to which I hope you are coming. Mrs Mayhew, Mr Cortes and their team have worked tirelessly this week to bring this show to the stage and we wish them all very well tonight. Break a leg!

  • Saturday 9 February 2019 From the Headmaster... Our Year 4 children had a great time at the Young Voices event at the O2 Arena on Monday. They sang with great gusto, I am told, and reports from parents point to it having been an excellent experience for all! Well done Year 4s and thank you to Mr Cortes for organising it and leading the trip along with Mr Snell, Mrs Mitchell and Miss Godman.

  • Friday 23 November 2018 From the Headmaster.... We have seen some really good focus from our senior pupils this week as they have either been involved in Year 7 and 8 assessments or preparing to be. It is great to see the older pupils act as role models for our younger children and I know the Buddy system is much valued by all the children both young and older.  Our Year 6s are enjoying their first visit to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London to watch Much Ado About Nothing.  The pupils' response to their Shakespeare studies has been really encouraging and I am delighted that this important feature of our national literacy archive is being shared so expertly with the children in the Prep school.
