Our Leavers enjoyed fantastic weather in Dorset last weekend.

A week of uncertain weather has not stopped us making the most of the opportunities around us, despite the extension of lockdown. As I write on a grey Thursday morning, Year 8 pupils are enjoying beach volleyball under the expert instruction of Mr Melton, and suitably attired Year 5 pupils are enjoying their Geography Field Trip with Mrs McKinnon and Mr Stead. Although we are subject to last minute changes caused by the weather and the ongoing situation, we are determined to ensure that your children enjoy as wide a variety of opportunities as possible in the last weeks of term.

I was pleased this morning to invite the members of 8L to my study, one at a time, to give them their Common Entrance examination results. Many have achieved results which they would not have thought possible earlier in the year. They can all be very proud of their achievements. I expect to be able to give 8H their Scholarship results before the end of next week.

Elsewhere in this Newsletter, you will see some splendid success on the Cricket pitch, and be able to watch footage of our Year 8 Leavers on their gloriously sunny weekend in Dorset.

I wish you a restful weekend, whatever the weather (and indeed the football result) may bring.
