FROM THE HEAD'S DESK

Half term saw a very successful Cricket Tour to North Devon and a number of good performances at the National Rowing Schools Regatta and the National Schools Sailing Regatta, well done to all concerned.

Healthy Eating week has seen new and different foods to try each day and the boys today especially enjoyed the Indian cuisine.

Sending the boys to the Senior Girls site for a Civil War event may seem to be tempting fate, however the event was a great success, clearly an enjoyable learning experience.

On Wednesday the Boys (and Girls) won their event at the London West Athletics meeting with over 900 competitors competing all afternoon, it was a great showcase for Schools' Athletics, and we can be proud of our athletes.


The best preparation for tomorrow is doing our best today. H Jackson Brown Jr
