Headmaster’s Update

It’s been a great week for children. What could be more exciting than the sight of several inches of snow falling, lending a romantic edge to the Christmas season? Of course, a dousing from the white stuff doesn’t make everybody happy. I dare say that those in our Estates Office were about as happy to…

Pre-Prep Christmas Fun!

Although the final week of the Michaelmas term in Pre-Prep has been somewhat shorter than expected, the children have been busy making final adjustments to party hats, calendars and Christmas cards. Some of the classrooms have replicated Santa’s workshop at times, and the cleaning staff have been faced with twinkling floors and sticky tables! Our…

Alice in Wonderland at the Old Rep

Year 4 enjoyed a special trip to the Old Rep Theatre on Thursday to see a modern adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale following Alice through the enchanted wonderland, meeting all sorts of peculiar characters along the way. Year 4 very much enjoyed their magical adventure through a rabbit hole!

House Quiz

Congratulations to St Monica’s who were the House Mastermind Champions of 2017! It was a close fought challenge with only a few points separating the teams. Well done particularly to the pupil in each house who conquered the Mastermind chair, as answering Mr Wurr’s questions 1:1 was especially nerve wracking!  The other rounds included a…

Old Scholars’ Christmas Lunch

On Wednesday we welcomed back a group of Old Scholars and friends of the School to a Christmas Lunch in the Boardroom. Some former pupils had not been back to visit for over 60 years so it was a real trip down memory lane.  After a delicious lunch from Holdroyd Howe, (who were multi-tasking and…

Headmaster’s Update

Perhaps, like me, you went to bed on Tuesday evening with hope in your heart and a radio under your pillow. If so, you will now be as deflated as an empty hot water bottle, dreading the idea of another whitewash Down Under, after those cocky Australians skittled out our wallaby-length tail and took a 2-0…

Fun in the Snow!

RS went to investigate and play in the snow this morning and created Frosty the friendly snowman. Perhaps he’ll still be standing by the Sports Hall on Monday morning! Stay safe in the snow this weekend!

Penguin Pete

If you have noticed the Children in Year 1 flip flopping and waddling around, it is because they have been practising their songs and moves for their Christmas production, ‘Penguin Pete’. The children have been practising diligently, perfecting their songs, lines and choreography over the last few weeks, ready to carry us to the frozen…

Are We Nearly There Yet?

In a very short time and after quite a journey, the Year 2 children managed to pull off an incredible Christmas performance. The Walker family took us all on a humorous expedition; passing Mary and Joseph en route to Bethlehem. During their family excursion, they encountered stunned shepherds, celestial and rapping angels, a super cool…
