Dear Parents


The first event of our busy build up towards the end of Term begins next week with Parent Meetings on Monday and Tuesday.


Form Five sat their Kensington Park School assessment this week under the watchful eye of Mrs Walsh and we were very proud of their maturity in sitting this, their very first external exam paper.  Parents and children from Form Three to Form Five have been invited to tour KPS on Wednesday, 21 November at 5pm.  Please do ensure that Ms White has your name down if you would like to attend this tour.


We are eagerly anticipating our Chamber Choir’s participation in the Connaught Village Fair on Thursday at 6pm.  Do come along and support our children and enjoy the local festive cheer!


After last year’s successful Book Fair, Daunt Books are returning on Friday, 23 November.  Children can bring in money (up to £10) clearly labelled in an envelope to buy books of their choice and they will be escorted to the Dining Room to make their selection.  Parents are invited to come along both at the start and at the end of the day to choose an early Christmas present or two from the many books on display.


We are thrilled to share with you the news that our Form Six girls have performed brilliantly in the Primary Maths Challenge achieving Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.  This was a 45-minute national test of 25 questions set by the Mathematical Association and correctly answering the necessary 80% to receive a Gold award was no mean feat.  This positive result should have set our girls on the right course for their upcoming 11+ examinations in the New Year.


A belated well done goes out to two other pupils also who, unfortunately, missed last summer’s Prize Giving ceremony.  They were awarded with their prizes in this morning’s assembly with the French Cup going to Katherine and a prize for achievement in History going to Ariana.


Forthcoming dates for your diary – invitations to each event will be sent out separately:


Friday, 30 November – Christmas Plays at the Carisbrooke Hall

Tuesday, 4 December – Forms One & Two Open Dance at the Sylvia Young Theatre School

Tuesday, 4 December – Senior Drama Club Performance in school

Friday, 7 December – Forms Three to Six Open Swim at Kensington Leisure Centre

Wednesday, 12 December – Carol Singing in St John’s Church followed by the end of term at 12pm


With best wishes.
