FROM THE HEAD'S DESK

A long but extremely useful evening, this best describes our Year 11 Parents Evening, it was good to meet and plan the final run up to the GCSE examinations.


Congratulations to Harry Turner who has been selected to run for Berkshire in the National Schools Cross Country Championships, this is a good time to remind parents of our own House Cross Country event , a week Saturday, I hope to see a good turn out.


Year 7 have their Rushall Farm visit on Monday, as I am joining the trip I am hoping for good weather, the forecast looks dry but the boys should be prepared for a wet day out. Year 10 have their Academic Mentoring meetings next week, very important to ensure the boys are working well.


Lastly good luck to the U16 7 s squad who are competing in the National ISA competition at MRFC next Wednesday.
