In a whole school assembly which included all pupils from both the Pre-Prep and Prep Schools, Mr Chapman reflected upon a hugely successful term across the board. Pupils were reminded that they too should reflect upon the term and to take on board both the things that have gone well and those areas that perhaps need improvement, before wishing everyone a very merry Christmas.
Thank you to Emily (Year 5), who opened the assembly beautifully by singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town before the following awards were announced:
Alanna, Florence and Aiden (all Year 6) were commended for their excellent writing, which had impressed Mr Braithwaite. Elodie, Poppy and Julietta (all Year 1) were awarded certificates for their faultless spellings all term, whilst Millie was praised for her efforts running two miles in the Santa Dash last weekend.
Thomas House was named victorious in the inter-house hockey competition, whilst Armstrong House took the title for the inter-house rugby competition.
During the course of the Autumn Term, over 7,000 house points have been awarded, an amazing total showing the incredible achievements of our pupils. The winning house, with 2,112 points, was Wilson.
Last weekend over 30 pupils were busy creating some extremely festive Christmas tree decorations, all of which were brilliant, making our School Secretary’s judging very difficult; however, the following were announced as winners:
- Pre-Prep – Elodie and Zac
- Year 3 – Zara and Skye
- Year 4 – Lottie and Issaac
- Year 5 – Georgia and Erin
- Year 6 – Daisy and Alice
Finally, the winners of the School Council poster competition were announced as follows:

- Year 4 – Tom (winner) and Monty (runner up)
- Year 5 – Iman (winner) and Katie (runner up)
- Year 6 – Ollie (winner) and Eddie (runner up)
The assembly culminated with a rousing rendition of I wish it could be Christmas everyday led by Alice (Year 4).
