Welcome back to the Summer Term – I do hope you all had a most enjoyable Easter break.
The school has been a hive of activity over the last few weeks. The old Theatre has been demolished and the site secured with hoarding. The rear playground of the Girls’ School will be out of use during the build, apart from as a secondary fire escape route, and the girls will now play in the top courtyard at lunchtimes. We have created a decked area for the pirate ship and other toys for the younger girls to use. For now scooters and bikes may be stored in their original location to the right of the Girls’ School, please do secure bicycles with a lock should you wish.
Many congratulations to Miss Rebecca who became engaged over the holidays, and to Miss Louise who is expecting a baby in October – such lovely news!
We welcome Miss Natalie to the team as our GAP Assistant this term; she will be involved in various areas, in particular with Games and fixtures.
The girls should be in Summer Uniform all term (green and white dresses, white ankle socks, blazer and panama hat). They may wear their green v-neck jumper, or if you prefer they may wear a plain bottle green cardigan (available from John Lewis and other suppliers). Blazers must be worn to school each day but may be carried home if the weather is very hot. We will apply sunscreen (Boots Soltan) to the children when needed but please inform your daughter’s form teacher if your daughter is allergic or if you wish to provide your own. Sun caps for Games are available from Perry Uniform.
Please see the website for the Summer Term menu. Please note that there will be no pasta option on the baguette day.
The Summer Term is always a very busy one and I would ask that you peruse the calendar carefully. Many apologies but there has been one amendment to the calendar since publication – we have had to move the date of the Summer Drinks Party, which will now take place on Tuesday 9th July. Notable dates for your diary are:
|6/5/13||Bank Holiday – school closed|
|3/5/13||Exam Week starts|
|19/6/13||Parents’ Evening (no clubs)|
|28/6/13||Junior Play (pm)|
|4/7/13||Sports Day (am, no afternoon school)|
|9/7/13||Summer Drinks party|
As always, should you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch.
With best wishes,
Mrs Sarah Segrave
