Today we celebrated Red Nose Day in aid of Comic Relief. Form II led the most amazing assembly which taught us to appreciate everything we have and to recognise how lucky we are. Every single girl remembered her lines and the words to every song. Thank you to Mrs Smith and Mrs Budgett for organising such a lovely assembly and to all our parents who contributed cakes for our cake sale and came to support us and to donate to this very worthwhile cause. FII are delighted to report that, so far, they have raised a whopping £475.64! Well done girls!
On Friday 27th September, we held our annual Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research. Thank you to all of our families and friends who baked cakes and then came along to our coffee morning to support us. We raised an amazing £675.13. Thank you everyone.
Our Hawaiian Luau on Saturday 21st June was a roaring success and the weather was perfect. Thank you so much to all the POSH ladies for organising this spectacular event and to all of our Seaton House families and friends for coming along to enjoy the afternoon.
Yesterday, all of our pupils from FI — FVI tried their hand at Maypole Dancing and we found that it is much, much more complicated than it looks! We had a lovely time as we wound the ribbons into a perfect pattern and then unwound them again to finish the dance exactly where we started. Thank you so much to Mrs Baker for organising this fantastic day and thank you to Abigail Stopher from The Education Group for your endless patience as you worked with us to show us how to do it. Here are Form V, showing us how it’s done.
This morning we held our final assembly of the term. As another action-packed, fun-filled term draws to a close, we wish all our families, friends and teachers a very happy, peaceful Easter break.
Tuesday was Harry Potter Day at Seaton House. During Assembly, the Sorting Hat put us into our houses — Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. During the day, we played Quidditch and scored points for our houses, we made wizard hats, we played wizard bingo, we made owl pom poms, dragon plates and painted potion bottles. Thank you Mrs Mannooch for organising this fantastic day!
FI & FII had a wonderful time yesterday at historic Hampton Court. We learned a Tudor Dance, we visited the Great Hall where a Tudor feast, fit for a King was laid out, we learned to ride a horse, Tudor-style and we went into the Chapel where King Henry VIII got married. We had an amazing day. Thank you to all the Junior House teachers and staff who organised this wonderful trip for us.
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 you so much to all our parents, staff and pupils for supporting us today. Huge thanks to Mrs Hossenbux and to our amazing POSH team for organising this wonderful event.

On Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day. Each class was designated an author and we dressed as our favourite characters from our chosen books. We participated in lots of activities and held a whole school assembly at the end of the day to showcase everything we had learned. Huge thanks to Mrs Riddick for organising such a wonderful day and also to Nick and Hannah from Love Theatre Arts who created mini productions for each class to perform.
