    School Starting Times

    Being on time for School: In the Junior School, we welcome the pupils from 7.30am into classrooms. We advise that the children arrive no later than 7.40am so that they can become organised and ease into the day. In Prep, this is also valuable time spent with the form teacher and means that the children will be ready for the register at 7.49am. 
     
     

    Weekly Emails

    A request please that parents and carers take careful note of the weekly emails sent out on a Wednesday or Thursday. These are both celebratory but also informative in nature, and often contain important reminders of events taking place.

    CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL CAST AND CREW OF ‘A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM’
     
    I would like to offer my deepest thanks to all those involved in the excellent Senior School production of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. It was a production full of energy, and superbly executed by the ensemble cast. To shift between the two worlds of the play and maintain the often complicated narratives in such a seamless fashion was an achievement indeed. Thanks should go to all of the backstage crew, technical support, costume and music not just for their work during the performances, but also in all of the preparation that went in to achieving such high production values. Such experiences for the pupils will stay with them long after they have left the College, and it is these moments that makes our community so special.
     
    “I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.” 
      
    Thanks, 
    Thomas Hill
    Head of Senior School
