Flippin' Good Fun!
Published on: Thursday, February 27, 2020
The younger boarders had a flippin' good night on Tuesday when they went to Mrs Masters' flat for an evening of pancake making! Great fun was had by all and everyone enjoyed flipping their creations (even if half of them ended up on the ceiling!). Let's face it, there's nothing more tasty and satisfying (in my humble opinion) than the classic lemon and sugar combo, but the children thought otherwise, opting for melted chocolate instead!
It's a War Zone!

On Friday we welcomed over 60 boarders for yet another movie night. This time round we watched the 2019 version of The Lion King - it was a hit with everyone (although I expect there were a few tired pupils).
The wind picked up overnight on Saturday, rattling a few windows and even a few large branches. Sunday morning, though, was a little more relaxing with a chess tournament taking place - serious stuff and very competitive, and what was even better was the hush that descended when the games begun. However, by Sunday afternoon the hush was overcome by all the boarders taking part in a Nerf Gun war. A company came from Wiltshire, dodging trees and gale force winds, and set up a war zone in the Sports Hall, and well... you can imagine the fun that was had!
This weekend is half term and we spare a thought for our international boarders who are unable to return home due to the current circumstances. I am sure that their host families will look after them well and give them a fun packed and enjoyable week. See you all soon!

Sunday Brunch with the Boarders
Published on: Friday, February 7, 2020
With such an amazing cookery school on site we would be foolish not to use it! So, on Sunday, we told the kitchens that the children would make their own lunch. Unsurprisingly, they voted to cook pizzas! They had no recipes to follow, but with common sense and a little guidance I think they made themselves a pretty tasty meal. There was plenty of dough flying around, lots of laughter and, following their feast, full tummies. A great way to spend a wet and grey Sunday.
