Headmaster’s Headlines – 14.01.22
It is a stunning afternoon here at School. The School site looks beautiful today, bathed in sunshine with hardly a cloud in the sky. Sunrises and sunsets have also been breath taking; I wonder how many more days we can have like this as the winter progresses.

Indoor Hockey Success
Over the Christmas break, several of our pupils competed at the Indoor Hockey UK Championships. This is a tournament ran independently of England Hockey, aiming to give more athletes a taste of Indoor Hockey, in a highly competitive environment.
This week Year 2 visited The Big Cat Sanctuary to learn about the habitats of the cats and how the sanctuary care for them. The children enjoyed an interactive workshop where they learnt how cats camouflage themselves, the difference in paw prints and why some cats have long tails and others have short tails. The children had the opportunity to look and feel the claw and teeth punctures on the big cats’ toy balls.Read More
As I type this on Friday morning, I am still beaming with pride at what our children and staff accomplished last night in the Spring Concert. We all know all too well how precious community events like this are after the last few years when gatherings became illegal. The creativity, joy and excellence on show last night, interspersed with glimpses of other learning powers such as bravery, originality and collaboration, made for a wonderful celebration and I am grateful for all who participated or assisted, including especially to Mrs Lordon.Read More

I love to watch cookery programmes and every weekend I make pancakes and we experiment with different flavours and even make art pancakes, using lots of different colour batters and make funny pictures and then eat them all up.Read More
Have you ever wondered how sound is made? How fast and how far sound can travel? Or why certain animals can hear certain sounds and we cannot? Pupils in Year 4 explored these questions, and many more in their Science lessons. They completed a sound survey of the Prep building.Read More
