Dear Parents

 

Congratulations to all of the Connaught House Community for remaining positive throughout what has been an exceptionally unusual term.  I would like to highlight how immensely proud we have all been of the children and how they adapted to the new safety measures followed in school.  We would also like to thank our dedicated staff for maintaining the Connaught House School high levels of care and attention and tailored education, whether that was remotely or in school.

 

We are pleased to be resuming lessons with our specialist teachers in the Autumn Term.  Dr Ashworth, Mme Gellar and Mrs Desborough will be following the strict social distancing and hygiene measures that have been put in place, and are very much looking forward to returning to school.

 

In our previous email, we shared the good news that Saif in Form One has been selected for the Young Artists’ Competition at the Royal Academy.  Please join us in celebrating our young artist in residence by voting for his work on the below link:

We are sure you will all agree that this is an outstanding piece.

 

Everyone enjoyed the final days of term, especially what turned out to be a very special prize giving in Connaught Square Gardens, despite the odd drop of rain!  The support the children showed for one another was lovely to experience and we received some praise from our Connaught Square neighbours, who took a moment to watch the goings on in the square.

 

The week culminated in a round of emotional applause for our Year Six leavers, who will be heading off to their new schools: Francis Holland, KPS, City of London and St Paul’s.  We wish them every bit of luck for the future and hope they will stay in touch with their friends at CHS!

 

Our updated procedure for a planned full re-opening in the Autumn Term, including information regarding peri lessons and after school clubs, coupled with our recalibrated risk assessment, will be available on the CHS website by Friday.

 

Finally, we would like to thank all of our parents once more for your kind words of support throughout this period; this has kept the team in good spirits.

 

Many thanks, best wishes and have a safe and lovely summer,
