Bulletin 6| Summer Term 2016

Information correct as at Friday 20 May 5.30pm

Important Notices

Parking - Please do not park or drop off on the yellow zig zag or double yellow lines around the school. Also please do not park opposite the school gates, as the coaches are unable to gain access to the site. Your help with this matter will be much appreciated.

While we appreciate that there is limited parking, please could we ask that parents and students respect our neighbours when parking at and around all our school sites. Thank you.

Nurses Note

Please ensure you use the 48 hour rule, of being clear of any sickness or diarrhoea, before returning to school. Good and frequent hand washing is really good practice.


The assembly for the Year 11 leavers was very enjoyable, the input from the boys and staff ensured an memorable reflection on the last 5 years ( I will be auditioning all solo performers for next year). A huge Thank You from myself to all the Parents who worked incredibly hard to make the Summer Ball a huge success.

Next week we have the boys sitting exams, I trust they have taken advantage of the revision guides and tips they have received to ensure as stress free a week as is possible. Good luck to the boys on Cricket Tour to Devon and the scullers at the National Schools Regatta, being held for the first time at Dorney. I will certainly be at the lake helping to support our crews.

Lastly, please park with care when dropping off or picking up as we try to cause the least amount of aggravation for our neighbours.

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