True to our Britishness we have much enjoyed talking about the weather this week! We have oscillated from Mediterranean to monsoon and along the way we had our digital connection to the world broken by the worst of it on Tuesday.
This enforced severance led to a wonderful oasis of calm
as we did not have the inexorable ‘ping’ of electronic communiqués calling us
to respond. It is very much part of the
world we live in now but I did enjoy a few hours of living life at a gentler
Term has certainly started at pace and even Reception
have been off on a trip after only 9 days of full time school. Last week the U12 boys won a cricket
competition, the U13 boys were unbeaten at their rugby festival and this week
saw the U11 and U12 girls win hockey tournaments meaning we rival Paralympics
GB for frequency of winning medals! Tomorrow sees about 60 girls and 90 boys
turn out for the school in various matches – a pacy start by any measure.
The Specialist Art Group are off to Broomhill Sculpture
Gardens next week and I have also been aware that Year 8 have commenced
rehearsals in earnest for Peter Pan which will be performed later in November.
Lunch is a time to slow down a little and today, across a
plateful of roast pork, I was asked by one new child who is clearly destined
for Business Management: “When did you buy the school, sir, and does it make
you lots of money?”
