Headmaster's Highlights

Friday 2nd December 2022

Dear Parents,

Enthralling as the World Cup, but without the controversy, our Under 11 football team played a dramatic final against Shrewsbury House in the Surrey Plate final. These boys learnt much about teamwork and resilience with a 6-3 victory going to the opposing side. Both of our U8s and U11s are still braving fixtures this week despite the weather. A super season. Rugby up next, with some great matches to look forward to next term.

With performance and music, we have been enjoying another end of season, with a great run of concerts, assemblies, and the Senior Carol Service at Trinity Church. Thank you to parents and families who took the time to come and support and applaud the boys’ best efforts. In particular, the Reception Classes reindeer show was notable for some brave performances and, as ever, the Carol Service was one of really super quality. It’s usually the highlight of my year to see all of our community come together with such dignity, celebration and joy for that particular event.

On community, a thank you ahead to the Homefield Association who have been industriously organising a Christmas Fair for your enjoyment next week on Tuesday 6th from 4.00 – 6.00pm. Turn out to these events has been on the up and reflect the great care taken by some very dedicated parent volunteers. As well as providing some fun for the boys and social time for you, these events also have real fundraising purpose. The Homefield Association have agreed to help fund a new adventure playground that we will commission in 2023. Such a wonderful gift that will give the boys many years of happy play and memories.

This will be the last newsletter of this term and we look forward to a strong finish next week. Watch out for extra-curricular club’s bookings opening just before term starts: we have much planned there. Over the holiday we have some estates maintenance ongoing and will be installing some smart new fencing to surround our new ‘MUGA’.

On behalf of all the Staff we hope you enjoy the holidays and a very Merry Christmas.

Headmaster
