Form VI had a great time last week on their residential trip to Osmington Bay, Dorset. Mrs McGreevy and Mrs Smith had a fantastic week with the girls and they were so impressed with their maturity and ‘can do’ attitudes. The instructors commented on how positive, knowledgeable and polite the were. They were also impressed by their teamwork and enthusiasm. Well done girls and welcome back!
We have received the wonderful news that Katy (FIV) and Miriam (FV) have both been selected for the Final of the Independent Schools Association Young Musician of the Year 2021 which this year is a virtual event. This is a marvellous achievement and we wish them luck submitting their pieces for the Final in February. In addition, Catherine (FV) who achieved a place in last year’s Final, has a photograph that can be seen currently on the ISA music news part of their website: https://www.isaschools.org.uk/arts/art/isa-young-musician-competition/music. Seaton House girls are already famous!

Press Release following the outcome of the court case with Carshalton Beeches Bowling Club
The school is naturally very pleased that the judge has found in our favour and that the school can reclaim the whole site as its own. The world has changed significantly in the last 20 years that it is no longer possible for a school site, such as ours, to be shared with a Bowling Club in the way that it had for so many years previously. We sympathise with the members of the CBBC for the loss of their club but we trust they will find opportunities with other similar clubs in the local area.
Therefore, this allows Seaton House School to move forward in the knowledge that Safeguarding Regulations can be fully satisfied and the school can refresh its facilities to enhance the Educational experience for all our pupils
The Headteacher & Governors of Seaton House
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.
This morning, Reception Class invited family and friends to hear their lovely singing, followed by morning coffee and lots of cake. If we were really lucky, we got to hold a newly hatched baby duckling! It was the loveliest celebration which really put us in the mood for Easter. Thank you so much to all our parents and
brother and sisters who came to support us and to Mrs McGreevy, Miss McGreevy and Mrs Cooper for organising such an amazing morning and for baking such yummy cakes!
And so, as term draws to a close, we hold our last, whole school Celebration Assembly for Form VI, who make us laugh and cry as they tell funny stories and act out skits of hilarious things that have happened during their time here at Seaton House. Goodbye girls and good luck. Have a wonderful Summer break everyone.
On Saturday 23rd June, we held our annual Summer Fete. Thanks to POSH, who worked tirelessly to transform our field into a scene from the Wild West, we dressed up as cowboys – and girls! – we rode on the bucking bronco, we explored the visiting fire engine and learned what it is like to be a firefighter, we held a bake-off competition and we demonstrated our gymnastic and musical theatre skills. It was a wonderful afternoon and the weather was perfect. Thank you so much to all our parents and to the staff at Seaton House who worked so hard to put on such a fantastic afternoon.
Rain? We didn’t even notice! This morning we held the Grand Opening of our lovely, new Early Years Centre. Thank you so much to all our parents and friends who came to help us celebrate. Our Nursery and Reception pupils wore their Easter Bonnets with style and guided their parents around to see all the wonderful things we have been doing in Early Years. Then we had tea and cake – thank you to everyone who supported our cake sale, which was held to raise funds for Stand Up to Cancer. Thank you to all Early Years staff who helped to organise such a lovely event. Happy Easter everyone!
We did it! We have smashed this year’s target £2,018 and have raised an incredible £3,079, with more pledges to come. Thank you so much to parents, family and friends who have donated to this worthwhile cause and left those vital messages of support for our girls. Every pupil, from Lower Nursery to FVI, has participated in this event to help raise money to beat cancer. The rain did not dampen our spirits as we walked together to the Royal Marsden Hospital. Every penny, every small step counts. Thank you to every pupil for participating and to all the parents who turned out to help this morning and accompanied us on our march and to the staff who coordinated this amazing event. Thank you everyone.
