Bulletin 9| Autumn Term 2016

Information correct as at Friday 18 November 2016 at 4.00pm


Well done to all the pupils who were involved in the Night at the Movies production last Friday and Saturday, a truly memorable performance.

We had a very productive Year 11 Parents Evening and my thanks to the Senior Prefects who ran an excellent assembly on Anti Bullying.

At Pangbourne Head James Lambert and Raamie Falk Awad won the U15 Double Scull event (also beating all the U 16 entries) and (although due to an RFU directive I'm not allowed to say we won) our U12 A side won all their matches at the Berkshire Rugby Festival, congratulations to all who were playing.

A reminder to Year 11 that we have our Sixth Form Open Evening next Thursday, I hope to see them all there.

Whatever the weather….

As the weather gets colder, may we take this chance to remind our parents of the School’s Emergency Closure Guidance in case we need to close the School due to adverse weather conditions.

CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY - Thursday 8 December

Help support Save The Children charity by donating £1.00 to wear your Christmas Jumper to school on this day.

Christmas Lunch

This year our Christmas lunch will be served at Senior Boys on Thursday 8 December. The menu can be viewed on the school website.

As almost all our pupils last year chose to enjoy Christmas lunch, this year we ONLY need to know if your child does not wish to have Christmas lunch, or has a dietary requirement. If this is the case, please complete this form by 30 November indicating your child’s requirements.


Rugby and BiathalonTeam Photographs

We have received the proofs of the U12, U13, U14 and U15 Rugby Team photographs for this term, and also the Biathalon Team photograph.

These are on display in the reception and are available to order. Order forms are available from the office. Deadline for orders is 8 December. Please note that the orders will not be delivered to school until after Christmas. Thank you

Lost Property

We are searching for one lost kit bag that has been missing since before half term. It has the initials 'MT' on it, and in addition we are also trying to track down three separate items of kit belonging to Ethan Brooks (PE top, shorts and trainers) that have gone astray in school. Also a pair of White PE shorts 30” (with a name tag, Oliver Walker in green) and lastly can we ask for help in tracking down a pair of expensive specs that have been lost in school, 'Hugo Boss' design, dark frames.

We appear to have quite a mountain of unamed and named lost property (non of the above though) in our Nurses room.

A Note from our School Nurse
