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).

 

   

What an amazing day the students had last week.  For the whole day the pupils flew around the classrooms, getting their passports stamped whilst learning facts about the featured countries.  A big thank you to our lovely parents who provided so many of the resources and came into school to talk about their heritage or to do demonstrations.  We are already looking forward to doing it all again next year!

We are delighted to announce that Seaton House have been ranked 2nd in the Sunday Times Parent Power Top 100 Prep Schools in England!

During Wellbeing Week, our children worked hard to create artwork for our hall displays. To promote positive self-esteem, every child in the school wrote on a leaf shape; ‘all the things I like about me’. Every pupil decorated a fish shape to demonstrate; ‘ we may all be different but in this school we all swim together.  Lastly, all children decorated pebbles using colour to express their feelings.  We are all delighted with the results. 🙂

The Royal Academy of Arts has accepted Delara’s (FVI) painting titled “Deforestation’ for both the online exhibition as well as being displayed at RA exhibition. Out of over 33,000 artworks only very few pieces of artwork have been selected by prestigious artists and art professionals. Well done Delara what an amazing achievement.

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.

The girls had great fun in the snow today. 🙂
