16 teams of willing souls battled it out at the PTA Quiz Night, 130 enthusiasts in total. All enjoyed a tasty fish and chip supper, spent generously at the bar and fielded a wide range of questions. Sixth Formers kindly helped with the setting up as well as running the bar. The overall winner with the highest score of the night was LMS — the teachers' team of 8 led by Evelyn Lang from Ridgeway who also won Teachers' First Place. Parents' First place was won by the team ‘Tequila Mockingbird’ comprising Martin Harris, Andrew Riley, Scott Graham, Tracey Riley and David and Louise Johnson. No need to sharpen the wits there then!

A telephone call or online shop will suffice to order your uniform, and if you wish to visit the shop, parking is available slightly further down Forlease Road behind 26–28 Forlease Road, Maidenhead SL6 1RX. Of course, if you are shopping at Waitrose, Goyals is just a step across the road!
