Seaton House Mini Marsden March

We did it! We didn’t just reach our target — we smashed it.— raising a staggering £2,725! This afternoon, in memory of Mrs Sallie Lunn, a much loved teacher at this school, every single one of us walked from Seaton House to the Royal Marsden Hospital to raise vital funds to help beat cancer. Thank […]

Form VI Poetry Competition

Today, Form VI showed their mettle and each gave a unique performance of their chosen poem. The standard was incredibly high, with poems of various lengths and complexity and memorable moments from each and every delivery. Words stood in the air, rhymes and rhythms chimed and the afternoon was a real celebration of what pupils […]

(Who knew?).   It was a performance fit […]

Form IV – Bowles Residential Trip. We are having a lovely time here at Bowles in Kent. We arrived safely, unpacked, had lunch and then went straight to dry slope skiing.

FVI Visit the Royal School of Needlework

  A report by Dila Seshadri, FVI:   On Wednesday 10th October, Form VI went for the first time to the Royal School of Needlework Animals in Embroidery Exhibition at Hampton Court Palace.   I personally thought it was great, as it was fascinating to see all the amazing embroidered art with such detail at arm’s length.  Even […]
