Despite the vagaries of the British weather this has been a week rich in activities and fun for pupils of all ages. The Sponsored Walk supported by representatives of the various House charities we are supporting was a joyful event in warm sunshine. Rain stayed away just long enough for the Pre-Prep Sports’ Day, a lovely afternoon in which all children participated with enthusiasm, and the Piano Recital enabled sixty pupils to perform to a very appreciative audience. My thanks to all parents who supported these events and to those who volunteered to help.

An exciting Languages Challenge was set by Mademoiselle Landroit, appropriately enough on World Languages Day, a day on which we celebrated the wonderful diversity, cultural and linguistic, which makes up your children’s world. There have been trips to Yellow Wave, a Geography Beach Study and i360 trip, plenty of rehearsals for the forthcoming senior production of Little Shop of Horrors, a South Downs walk and much more besides.

This has all come on the back of trips week and so you will not be surprised by what is a bumper addition of the Newsletter. I should perhaps finish by reporting that I had the great pleasure of handing out Common Entrance results this morning. Every child in Year 8 has successfully passed their entrance examinations to the Senior School of their choice. Their results were excellent. We are delighted for them.

I am thoroughly looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow at Sports’ Day and Prize Giving, when we can join together to celebrate a year rich in achievement for your sons and daughters.
