Travel News

You may be aware that the north carriage of Hyde Park will be closed from 16 June until the end of term.  In our experience, this causes a knock-on effect to traffic around the school, particularly first thing in the morning.  May we respectfully ask parents not to park on the corner of Stanhope Place when dropping off or collecting children as this can cause further problems.

 

Footie News

Sadly, our annual football fixture with St John’s Wood Pre-Prep was rained off yesterday.  However, this will be rescheduled at the start of the Autumn Term.

 

Fingers crossed we have better luck with the weather for our football team’s match against Lloyd Williamson School on Thursday, 20 June at 4.30pm which is taking place instead of the regular Thursday Football Club.  This will be another opportunity for our incredible CHS football stars to show their ball skills and any supporters who want to cheer on the team will find them at the ‘Old Football Pitches’ on the south side of Hyde Park (see link below ):

Daunt Books

Mrs Hampton and Ms Grunewald were proud of the children’s exemplary behaviour at our visit to the Daunt Book store in Marylebone today.  A selected member from each class was chosen as a Reading Ambassador to help choose new books for the CHS library.  It was particularly wonderful this year to have children whose families originated from outside the UK as Daunt Books specialise in international travel books.  The children were fascinated by the history of the shop especially when looking at books dating back to the mid-nineteenth century.  Some lovely new books will be available throughout the school next week.

 

Form Six Secret Trip

Mrs Hampton and Ms Grunewald are looking forward to keeping up with the tradition of a secret trip for Form Six next Friday. Shhhh!   Details will be shared after the event.

 

Best wishes.
