    Published 08/03/19, by Amy Hewitt

    Every pupil, parent or friend of Claires Court Senior Boys knows we are blessed by having the most Amazing School Receptionist (ASR), Mrs Sharon Adams. Once of the Thames Valley Police, Sharon joined our employ initially as part of the catering team  and then moved to her current role in 2003. As ASR she has rescued countless bags, pupils, staff and parents from umpteen calamities, has been a fount of all knowledge and sage advice for any question from the encyclopaedia of ‘unknown unknowns’ that bedevil school and family life. She is married to Shaun and has 2 grown-up children, Nicola and Mark (CCSB 2004-08, now following a teaching career in Turkey). Sharon and Shaun are moving to Warwickshire at the end of this month, and so leaves her front of office desk that has been such a comfort for us (if not for her, being right near the front door on winter mornings!). Any parents and friends wishing to drop in to see Mrs Adams are very welcome throughout the week beginning 25 March.

    Year 7 boys had their first day ‘show day’ on Open Morning this Wednesday; they made an incredibly good job of showing around 30+ sets of visitors, who complimented them on their knowledge, their humour and their positive passion for their school. Thanks boys - you made us #ccproud.

    Published 25/01/19, by Amy Hewitt

    This week has rather been split by the 'snow day' on Wednesday. With 60% of our boys coming in by school coaches, many from the heavily affected areas in Buckinghamshire, it became quite obvious on Tuesday night just how late an arrival home many would have.

    Welcome back, one and all at Senior Boys, to our Lent term 2019. As I hope your sons have reported back in person, we have really got going straight away, and by the time you read this, a truly productive three days has been had by all. The boys have greeted me with a combination of ‘open arms’ plus ‘wry amusement’. Said one Year 11 pupil, “Why on earth have you come back in to headship, Sir - weren't you enjoying your retirement?”
