The Summer Term promises to be action packed with a busy timetable for everyone and many activities beginning this week.  Please look at the Term Calendar for more information. The Games Schedule is on the website and Junior One will be thrilled to hear that Miss Kate will be continuing her dance lessons this term.


Summer events to look forward to include the Summer Concert (17 June at 2.30pm – Steiner Hall), Sports Day (24 June at 10.30am – Paddington Rec) and Prize Giving (6 July at 11am – Carisbrooke Hall).  The Concert at the Steiner Hall is a wonderful reflection of the children’s enthusiasm for music, nurtured by Mrs Hopkins and well supported by the music teachers and staff team. The Steiner Hall is a particularly lovely venue for the occasion but do note that the event is not suitable for younger children. Sports Day, held at Paddington Recreation Ground, is definitely an occasion for all the family to enjoy together.  Prize Giving at the Carisbrooke Hall on the last day of term is always a real celebration of your children’s achievements.


Clubs this term include plenty of physical activities, some out-of-doors when weather permits. The seniors have a Games Club (including running and Quick Cricket) and Yoga. Juniors have indoor/outdoor games and Nature Detectives.


School trips, so far confirmed for this term, include visits to Bocketts Farm, Windsor Castle and a Windsor trip, the Horniman Museum and the British Library. Form Six have their annual Mystery Trip to look forward at the end of the term too and, as a well earned treat in the middle of the exam week, Miss Steel has organised a special Science Afternoon on Wednesday, 1st June.

Parent Meetings are scheduled for  Tuesday, 31st May, and Thursday, 2nd June and there are reports at the end of this term.


As part of our ongoing school development plan we have reviewed our end of year exams and will be moving on from SATS papers to standardised tests including SPAG, CATS 4, INCAS and NFER assessments. We believe these tests will provide very useful information on our pupils’ development and results will be shared with parents towards the end of the term. Further information will be sent in due course.


Finally, the World Book Day activities were a great way to end the Spring Term and well done to all who participated in the Photography Competition and Book Character Costume in aid of the St Mary’s Hospital More Smiles Appeal. The total amount raised was £145.95.
