As the nation begins a second lockdown, I would like to wish those for whom this creates most difficulties and most worry every comfort. I feel very fortunate that I can come in to work and witness every day the enthusiastic joy of our pupils and the dedication of our teachers, but I am very aware that there are many within our community who are anxious and who have suffered from the consequences of a pandemic which brings with it the uncertainty which we all find discomforting. At such a time, I believe it is helpful for us all to think of others, to care for others and to show charity.
As you will see from the poppy on our masthead, our thoughts are turning towards our annual Act of Remembrance. This is one aspect of school life that will not change despite everything that is happening in our world. Our remembrance of the past puts our current privations into stark context given the sacrifices of our forebears. Video footage of our Remembrance event will be made available on 11th November.
