Dear Parents


After a thoroughly busy and productive first six weeks of the Autumn Term, our pupils returned refreshed and raring to go for the second part of the term.


A huge thank you to the parents from Junior One and Form One who raised an impressive £150 for MacMillan Cancer Support at our annual coffee and cake sale.  Some delicious treats were shared and it was an opportunity for our parents to meet one another and watch a delightful video of our Junior One children in action.  Beneficiaries of left over cakes went to our friends at the Victory Services Club and the local homeless.


The children were abuzz with anticipation about our newly formed School Council.  The Councilors, who were democratically chosen by their classmates from each form (Junior One to Form Six), met for the first time on Thursday to vote for a Committee Chairman and Scribe.  In today’s Good Works Assembly, each member of the Council was awarded a badge to wear with pride over the coming months.  We look forward to receiving their ideas and suggestions in due course.


Ms Carroll was very pleased with the results of the children’s Christmas cards as we hope parents are as well.  Please do send in your order form and payment to the office as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.


We are very grateful to those parents who found the recent memorandum regarding the school uniform informative.  We do appreciate that with the colder weather fleece hats, along with the school scarf and gloves, may be needed for extra warmth.  Please do ensure that a spare hat is kept in school along with the 3-in-1 coats for Park time.


We were thrilled to have visits from past pupils, Natalia and Leah.  Natalia is thriving at South Hampstead High and she shared her knowledge of moving into senior school with our current Form Six.  Mrs Hampton was very happy to hear that Natalia has kept up her wonderful achievements in music and is part of her school’s Chamber Choir.  Since starting in September at Godolphin & Latimer, Leah has already received an accolade for the best rocket design in Physics and won both the 50m breast stroke and free style races when representing her school at the U12 London Swim League gala.


With the nasal flu vaccination programme scheduled for Friday next week, please do ensure that all paperwork has been returned to school in time for your son/daughter to be included.


Early notice for haircuts, etc, as individual and sibling photographs will take place on Monday, 12 November.


You will have seen from the Calendar sent to you earlier in the week that Parent Meetings are scheduled for Monday, 19th and Tuesday, 20th November.  We are rolling out a new online booking system where you will be able to choose a time for yourselves to meet with your child’s form teacher.  The link will be sent to you next week.  Please note that on these days there will be no Drama Club or Art Club after school.
