July 2021


Dear parents and carers

As always you will see in our newsletter that the girls have been enjoying their learning in and beyond the classroom.  There is an extensive range of enrichment activities which we think is very important for the girls.  This is because they can develop different skills and develop their character.

If I think back over the year there is something that really stands out amongst our school community and that is resilience. We have all noticed that the girls have risen to the challenges and changes that have come their way.  The work we have seen the girls produce during the digital school and face to face in school is of a high standard.

Our Sports and Activity Days have been very enjoyable, both remotely and here in the school grounds. In the pages to follow you will see the photographs of everyone learning many new skills. These include crotcheting, Irish dancing, gardening, dancing, tennis, croquet. There were also groups of girls who had great fun doing Forest School and playing Chess. Year 7 loved questioning their teachers who were characters in the Murder Mystery. Year 8 really enjoyed making a face moisturiser and marketing their product.  Year 9 had a fantastic time walking in Bentley Priory.  Girls in all year groups excelled in the Sports Day events.  Those girls at home engaged well in their remote activities. Their behaviour displayed throughout was exemplary.

With very best wishes
