FROM THE HEAD'S DESK

The Year 8 Parents Evening proved to be very informative and all were reminded of the revision tips on the Claires Court Learning Hub - you simply clip on Subject Areas, Senior Boys, Year and there are helpful guidelines for your son and his revision .

Well done to the rowers over last weekend at Hammersmith Regatta and at the Trials in Nottingham, good results all round.

The school photo went well, very sunny but probably the coldest I can remember a harsh easterly wind, hopefully it will be warmer for the Bank Holiday.

I look forward to the Boat Club Dinner on Saturday, there are still a few tickets remaining, Tom Aggar is the guest speaker, it promises to be a great night.


The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
