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!
The entire school took part in our annual My Marsden March on 12th March 2021. Despite a few little rain showers everyone waved their flags and enjoyed the fantastic support we received from our local community.
This year was the 10th time that the school took part in the March in memory of Mrs Sallie Lunn one of our teachers who lost her battle to cancer in July 2013. An amazing £3,355 was raised this year and in total £31,234 has been raised over the 10 years. Thank you to everyone who took part and to everyone who supported us.
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.

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
On Friday 13th, the entire school completed the annual walk to The Royal Marsden Hospital in memory of a special teacher, Mrs Lunn who lost her battle with cancer in July 2013. Members of Mrs Lunn’s family joined the pupils, staff and parents on our walk and we raised over £2,300. Thank you to everyone who supported this wonderful event.
The pupils and staff enjoyed World Book Day yesterday. The children got a chance to see everyone’s outfits during assembly. Thank you to all the children (and parents) who went to great effort to support this wonderful celebration of the written word.
Last Friday, we enjoyed the lovely Christmas Show performed by Reception, Form I and Form II. Thank you to all our parents and friends for coming to support us – we are all feeling very festive now!
