Celebrating Success: Week 8 Spring Term

This week we had a bumper Celebration Assembly, with plenty of awards to be handed out. The first week back at school after the half term has been a busy and productive one.3

Assembly started with the awarding of Head Teacher Awards to Ellie H and Georgia P in Year 1 and Erin L in Year 5.


Top House Point Certificates were then awarded to Jessica S (Rec), Tom H (Y1), Harry J (Y2), George C (Y3), George M (Y4), Hudson M (Y5) and Bella M (Y6).

At the end last half of term, Kinver were leading the House Points Total; all of the pupils seated in The Barn were keen to know how the scores were looking after the first week back. There were cheers as Clent were announced the Top House Point Scorers for the week. This means that they edge closer to Kinver on the total points to date!

We might have only been back at school for a week but that hasn’t stopped five pupils from achieving new Hawford Activity Badges! This morning Emily S was awarded her MFL badge and Amelia M was awarded her English badge. Bertie D, Aryton L and Harry B were also presented with their Maths badges. What brilliant achievements these are! We are sure that they will be busy testing out their sewing skills over the weekend!


Mrs Phillips witnessed her first King’s Hawford Pancake Races earlier this week and was delighted to hand out winners’ certificates in assembly this morning. You can read more about the event here.

It was wonderful to have the whole of the Prep School gathered in The Barn for assembly today. This morning’s hymn definitely benefitted from having more voices in one place. Our Heads of School, Fletcher and Millie, did a wonderful job leading the school in prayer.

Assembly finished with a special treat. Seven children in Year 5 are currently working towards gaining their Project Gambia Citizenship Awards. As part of this they have to give a presentation. The whole school enjoyed a preview of these presentations in assembly and were impressed with the confident presentation skills the children displayed. It is not an easy task to speak in front of one’s peers, but all of the pupils involved rose to the challenge and gained valuable experience.
