At 8.20am on Thursday 30th August, your sons and daughters, a significant number new to the school, came through our red gates to begin the Michaelmas Term, the longest of our three terms. It seems a long time ago and yet only a moment ago. On reading the reports of our 300 pupils, it is clear all have made very good progress, have achieved much and have enjoyed the varied opportunities they have had. They can look forward to the opportunities and challenges of the New Year with confidence, but come Thursday afternoon, when they will be passed over to you for the holidays, they will have thoroughly earned a rest.
Our final week has been a very busy one, with a large number of children performing, and I would like to pass on my thanks to all of the teachers who have worked so hard to make this possible. I would also like to thank all of you for the support you have given the many events and for your patience with late pick-ups and extended rehearsals.
I wish you all a very happy Christmas.
