Welcome back one and all to the Summer Term 2022! It’s not often we have a ‘drought’ this early in the Summer term, but being dry when athletics, cricket, sailing, paddling and rowing are all part of the school day has made for a great first week back in school. The fine weather also made the taking of the official school photograph for 2022 really easy, the first since 2019!
Don't forget to buy your Ball tickets asap! If you don't have a group to go with that is no problem as we have Icebreaker tables and we will try to seat you with the same year group where possible. It promises to be a fantastic evening of dancing to a live band, a three-course dinner and bar available. Look at our Facebook page for more details or email firstname.lastname@example.org. www.facebook.com/clairescourt

Reception Desk Plea
Please could you label all your sons clothing, shoes, and PE kits! Last term we had an incredible amount of lost property at Reception, and there is still a lot more that the boys have not picked up as yet. A note was sent to all the boys who had clothing at Reception to collect. If the boys could ensure that after a PE lesson to take all their belongings back home for a wash. They are not to leave any items of clothing in the changing rooms or locker area. Thank you for your help.

U13 boys tennis v The Oratory: a wonderful start to the tennis season with a convincing win over The Oratory without dropping a game. Led by Captain Harry C, the boys thoroughly enjoyed playing on the grass courts at The Oratory and we were blessed with some outstanding tennis from our boys. This U13 team has high hopes of reaching the National Finals which aren't due to be played until December, and after last night's success we are certainly off to a superb start!
