Our pupils and staff were honoured to take part in Belmont’s Remembrance Service and Parade.  Thank you to Ella, Emily and Sophia for your fantastic participation in this event.

We had a wonderful day yesterday hosting our annual Gladman Tournament.  Congratulations to Aberdour who won the tournament and congratulations to our team who came second.  Thank you to Mr Colomer for organising such a great event and thank to all the participating schools: Cumnor House, St Mary’s, Banstead Prep, Warren Mead, Ewell Castle, Old Palace of John Whitgift, Micklefield and Aberdour.     See you all next year 🙂

 

Last Thursday, Form VI went to London to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which is currently being studied in their comprehension lessons with Mr Bates.  The girls enjoyed lunch at Prezzo’s and then made their way to the theatre.  We are looking forward to seeing the film of the day, made by the girls with the GoPro 🙂

Form V organised and led Friendship Day last week.   The girls from Form V held an amazing assembly and organised the making of friendship bracelets and posters.  All the girls loved the afternoon and we were so proud of the girls in Form V. Well done!

Mrs Milne accompanied Form IV to the Epsom College Music Festival last week.  The girls sang beautifully and had a great day!

The children in Nursery were visited in school by their grandparents!  What a fun afternoon of tea, cake and activities.  Thank you to all the grandparents who came and see you all again soon!

Over the summer holidays, we completely refurbished our Early Years garden.  The children were so excited to see the amazing transformation and couldn’t wait to ride their tricycles around the new track!

 

 

The girls had such fun in the summer celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.  Activities included our very own Bake-Off, Maypole dancing, a quiz and crown decorating… and the sun shone throughout!

 

What a wonderful day we had completing our annual Marsden March.  Thank you to everyone who supported this event both financially and physically.  A special thank you to Ian one of our local residents and ex pupil of the school (70 years ago) who came out of his house to clap our girls!  We raised an amazing £3,743.00.

 

In this month’s ISA Journal, Carl Bates, Headteacher of Seaton House School writes about British trained and educated teachers who have left the UK to work overseas.  His first hand experience as a veteran of two spells overseas gives food for thought to those thinking of following in his footsteps and its impact on the UK teaching profession.  The article can be downloaded or read here(page 36-37).
