Message from Mrs Cawthorne Final message of term

There have been many memorable highlights this term. We have been royally entertained by two major musical productions, Form 4’s spectacular The Wizard of Oz and Forms 5 and 6’s brilliant Fame. Sports day was a wonderful opportunity for the children to demonstrate their sporting prowess and sportsmanship and the popular young musicians’ assemblies enabled children to build up their confidence by performing in front of a supportive audience. The maths competition and form assemblies have been enjoyed by all and the art produced for art week was simply stunning.

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer holiday and look forward to hearing about the children’s adventures when I see them in September. 

Prize Giving Farewell to Form 6

Today has been bittersweet as we bade farewell to our wonderful Form 6 children. It has been a privilege to watch them developing skills in so many different areas but above all growing in confidence, ready to face the challenges of senior school life.

Inter-house maths competition Wyvern are victorious!

Mr Wingfield writes:

On Friday 5 July, we held our annual inter-house mathematics competition, which has become, over the years, a much-anticipated and nail-biting way to end the week. This is now the sixth inter-house mathematics competition we have held, and I was particularly struck this year by the speed, confidence and enthusiasm with which the children were able to answer the questions put to them, taking time to consider the question carefully. I believe that the ‘mathematics mastery’ approach that is taking root across the school has, in no small way, contributed to this improvement of fluency, articulacy and enjoyment to mathematics, which was very pleasing to observe.

Well done to every child who participated, and to the team of the winning house, Wyvern.

Form 6 French

Mlle Dolques writes:

Form 6 performed the play “Blanche-Neige et les nains sportifs” using the green screen and filming with the iPad. The children delivered their lines in French perfectly and played their roles brilliantly. Behind the scenes, some of the children directed the cast and edited the videos with great organisational and technical skills. Bravo Form 6!
