A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Last night a three-night run of an 80s inspired take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream went out with a bang – literally – with confetti cannons and the YMCA bringing an end to three months of hard work by a talented cast of Year 10 – U6. A huge thank you to everybody who helped to put on the production and to everybody who came to watch!

Founders' Day

On the morning of Wednesday 19 October 2016, we held our annual Founders' Day celebrations. The day started with Founders' Day Cookies provided to all pupils and staff, followed by the Founders' Day Service held at St George's Church. During the Service, our Head Boy and Head Girl presented flowers to commemorate our founding benefactors. Many of our former pupils will remember the traditional boaters; these are worn every Founders' Day by our prefects. The day concluded with lunch at the School - we were delighted to welcome former pupils, staff, governors and other guests joining us for the meal.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

During this past week over 60 pupils from Years 7-9 put on three brilliant performances of C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, rounding off an impressive year for drama. As always, there were a number of breathtaking moments, from the first entrance of the almost ten-foot high wardrobe doors, to the intricately choreographed stone table and battle scenes. Thanks to the crew for their patience and hard work, as well as Mrs Parkinson and all the pupils who took time out of their busy schedules to design and create the amazing masks of Maugrim and the other wolves. Finally, thanks must go to the amazing cast, who were a pleasure to work with and impressed everybody who saw the show.


Our Year 8 students had a great day at thinktank, exploring science and technology.

Mr Chaim Ferster, Holocaust survivor

It was our profound privilege to welcome Mr Chaim Ferster to our school this morning. Now aged 93, he shared the harrowing story of his upbringing as a Jew in Poland and his incarceration in eight Nazi concentration camps during WW2, including Auschwitz and Buchenwald. We were all deeply moved by his tragic tale of suffering, loss and survival. He answered questions and joined us for lunch, and even asked to play one student's violin.

The BBC Micro:bit computers have arrived!
