Spring Term - Latest Newsletter

Wednesday 29 March 2017

Message from Mrs Keep

Dear Parents

I am writing these words for this newsletter in disbelief that the Spring term is drawing to a close. As the days start to get longer and we see more sunshine, somehow the school is busier than ever. 
That said, there was something of a quiet feel to a school that is usually filled with noise and movement. The Year 7 & 8s had their heads down and applied themselves with determination to their mock exams. Whether their results were what they hoped for or helped to highlight areas for future study, they should be proud of the way they set about tackling the challenges that were put before them.  
Of course, while the oldest children were working studiously, there has still been time for plenty of fun.  Having been away at a prep schools conference at the start of last week, I was sad to miss the woodwind and string evenings but have been assured by Mr Farley that the children’s performances were confident and accomplished. To perform before an audience is daunting and yet time and again our children smile and play with evident joy. 
For the pre-prep mummies who are reading this newsletter, it goes without saying that the Mother’s Day celebrations have been a highlight. Daddies, your turn will come when we get to Father’s Day in June.  Summer Term calendars will come home with your children this week, so do make a note in your diaries.  

On Friday we had a Charity Day, raising money for both Comic Relief and Cancer Research. Watching the whole school (teachers included) attired in red, lapping the main and lower fields was a perfect reminder that in amongst everything else we do, the children here will always think of others and think beyond our school walls. 

Today, we have celebrated the end of term in a variety of ways, mostly involving eggs. I hope the children enjoyed it!
May I take this opportunity to thank you all for another successful term and to wish you a happy, restful Easter break with your children. I wish our skiers the very best of blue skies and fresh powder and look forward to hearing about everyone’s adventures when we return for the Summer term.

With best wishes,

Mrs Kirsty Keep
