Headmaster’s Update

This particular cohort have many qualities, and chief amongst them must be their immaculate sense of timing. Just when our beloved party leaders have given up finding anything new to say, and have started to promise anything and everything in the silly season of election campaigning. Just when the unlovely Chelsea have bought their way…

Transition’s Trip to the Farm

The Transition children enjoyed a fantastic (and very wet) day out at Ash End House Children’s Farm this week. They had a wonderful tour around the farm visiting lots of different types of animal. All of the animals were very friendly and the children were able to feed lots of them. The children particularly enjoyed…

Headmaster’s Update

Coming up from Devon to Edgbaston, where Ian Botham produced heroics at The Ashes some 36 years ago, I was prepared to witness some cricketing drama. However, to see it from an eight-year-old boy was not something that I could have predicted.  Completely uninhibited, with a lovely rhythm and a remarkable athleticism and speed, one…

Pre-Prep Recital

On Tuesday 9 May members of Pre-Prep took part in the final recital of the year. What a wonderful final concert it was, with children as young as four years old performing! The children demonstrated accomplished musical skill, but most importantly seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and showed a real love of sharing music…

Treasure disappears from 2P!

2P had an incident in the classroom. Somebody came into the classroom whilst the children were outside playing and stole their special treasure box! Police and forensic officers were called and the detective work began. Clues were gathered; handprints, footprints and head circumferences were all measured and the culprit was found. Out of six strange…

Forest Schools

2J were delighted to be the first Pre-Prep class to enter the Forest School.

We enjoyed building with natural resources and explaining the purpose of our structures. We are looking forward to our…

Year 2 Outing to Weston Park

Year 2 enjoyed a fascinating day out at Weston Park in glorious sunshine on Wednesday.  They experienced for themselves the cramped, damp and smelly conditions of an Anderson shelter.
