Head of School’s Welcome

And so we come to the final week of the academic year. In a 12 month period which has seen so many new and unexpected aspects to school life, such as year group bubbles, in-school Lateral Flow Testing and a daily temperature checks, it is both reassuring and exciting to see our traditional end of year events taking place.
Sports Day is a perfect example of a school tradition which, through the energy, imagination and commitment of staff, continues to develop year on year. Our thanks go to Mr Manington and Miss Burgess from the PE Department for a most excellent day, including a full range of track and field events and inter-house tug of war. The enthusiastic participation from all our students was impressive, with a stream of personal bests; as always students’ support for each other was outstanding. Our thanks also go to Chef Pilmer and the catering team for providing a delicious take away picnic lunch which students and staff enjoyed together on the grassy bank of our field, in the warm summer sun accompanied by music. The final events of the day were the relays for all year groups, closing with the Inter-House staff relay in which sixteen members of staff battled it out with Mr Spurrier crossing the line for Moore House just ahead of Mr Manington, Coleman.
