Happy New Year! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas holiday and that the boys have had a chance to re-charge their batteries ready for the term ahead. As usual we have much planned for the forthcoming term.
Miss Naomie, who is teaching French in the Pre-Prep while Miss Anouska has been on maternity leave, will be leaving us at half-term, as Miss Anouska is returning to work. We thank Miss Naomie for all the hard work and dedication she has displayed in the short time she has been with us. Apart from teaching stimulating French lessons, she has been a great asset to the school and has even got to grips with re-organising books in the library.
We welcome Nic Marot as our new GAP assistant. He is from Australia and will be working in the Pre-Prep for a whole year, which is wonderful.
You will see from the Spring Term Calendar that we have a stimulating and busy few weeks ahead of us. Please do check the dates carefully – particularly important ones to note are:
25th January – 8+ Examinations
27th January – Scholarship interviews and practicals
3rd February – Second Hand Uniform Sale at 8.30 am
13th – 17th February – half-term
27th February – Book week begins
29th February – Costume Day – boys to come to school dressed as a character from a book
15th March – Spring Fair
29th March – End of Term
You will also find a copy of the calendar and other useful information, such as this term’s lunch menus, on the website.
This year Sports Day will be held on Wednesday, 4th July starting at 10.00 am, at the Battersea Millenium Stadium. Please note that there will be no afternoon school on this day.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
With very best wishes to you all for the New Year and the term ahead!
Mrs P T M Cawthorne
