Internal examinations ran smoothly, as they so often do with it quickly dawning that the reality of exams is far less worrying than the perception. I am full of admiration for the calm and purposeful approach those sitting internal examinations showed. Next week it is Brighton College Academic Scholarship exams and I wish our Year 8 pupils the success they deserve. Pupils in 8H have made excellent progress over a year in which they have risen impressively to the academic challenges which Scholarship preparation brings. They should be commended, just as those who are sitting Common Entrance should be commended, for their sustained attention to the quality of their academic work.
Meanwhile, life has continued with the joy of sports fixtures and the enthusiasm for learning and for play which is captured in the pages within this Newsletter. There has been sand between toes at Yellowave, the joy of water sports at Hove Lagoon, feasts to mark the end of Ramadan and creativity aplenty in the Pre-Prep. Summer does not yet seem upon us, but no doubt it will be soon.
