Senior High Notes 2nd September 2022

It was lovely seeing everyone return to school this week after such a long time apart. I would like to extend an especially warm welcome to all our new students and parents who joined us for the first time.

On Thursday I visited every class across the whole school; I was very impressed to see first-hand how quickly the children were all settling into the new term and new routines.

Senior High Notes 8th July 2022

Whilst I do not want to dwell too much upon the unprecedented challenges of the past two years, I do want to share with you my admiration for the courage and resilience that all members of this community have demonstrated.
