    Published 26/11/21, by Hayley Johnston

    With three weeks to go until the end of term (I know!!), Christmas is sneaking in! Nativity rehearsals are well on their way as are our Carol Service rehearsals. We have so much to look forward to; even if we are forced to follow restrictions, we are determined to celebrate Christmas in as normal-a-way as possible.

    It has been another busy week at Juniors Girls and with World Kindness Day last weekend, we have had lots of discussions about exactly that. How will you show kindness to others? This was a question asked by Miss Dockerill when she hosted a fantastic, interactive, virtual Assembly for the Junior Girls and Boys on Tuesday Morning. Miss Dockerill used Jamboard for the pupils in all classes to have the opportunity to share their answers with us all. See all of their ideas below.

This week, our main focus has been on ‘Remembrance’ and, across the divisions, we marked this special occasion on Thursday by all participating in an online Remembrance Service and observed a 2-minute silence at 11am.

    Published 15/10/21, by Hayley Johnston

    This half term has been a successful start to our academic year. We have had so much to celebrate, not least the way the boys and girls have come back with eagerness and kindness. The past 18 months have been a whirlwind of change and it is such a great thing to witness so many ‘normal’ events take place again.

    Published 01/10/21, by Hayley Johnston

    Another week has flown by and although we had to postpone our Harvest Festivals and some fixtures, we have still managed to fit in so much! This week our Forest School programme started at Junior Boys. Den building, games and fire building commenced and, although there were some very soggy bodies, it was a lot of fun!

    Published 24/09/21, by Hayley Johnston

    Another week has flown by with so much achieved and so much to look forward to. This week G6 enjoyed learning about etiquette rules for ‘middle class’ women in Victorian Times; they disagreed with the rule ‘never read in company’ but agreed with the rule ‘never make a noise when eating’! Year 1 went on a materials hunt around school in their science lessons. And G2 received a letter from Frustrated Felt Tips and Cranky Colouring Pencils. Our Roles of Responsibility at Junior Boys and Junior Girls have been voted for and announced; we are looking forward to seeing what they accomplish this year.

    Published 17/09/21, by Hayley Johnston

    Our first full week back has been full of lots of new opportunities and engaging activities (and maybe some tired pupils (and teachers, too!). It’s been wonderful to see so many pupils enjoying our after school activities and fixtures as well as ‘getting stuck in’ to the learning in the classrooms.

    Welcome back to each and every one of our Junior Boys, Junior Girls and Nursery School pupils. The past two days have been full of energy and excitement for both staff and pupils.

    The last bulletin of this academic year, and wow, what a year it has been! The girls have been through so much and their resilience and ability to overcome the challenges has been immense! They have been encouraging, supportive and altogether kind human beings. There is so much to celebrate, which I hope you will enjoy next week at Prize Giving online or in person.

    Published 02/07/21, by Catherine Corrigan

    Wow, what a week! We had so much to enjoy this week; I think it was a bit of an adrenaline overload compared to what we have been used to for the past year (which hasn’t been a lot).
