1U had great fun creating their own Rangoli Patterns outside on the quad, as part of their Humanities topic ‘All Around the World’. First they chose or made up a design and drew the outline using white chalk. Next, they used different colours to enhance the design. What a surprise for Mr Wilson when […]
Form 4 pupils visited Cranleigh School Chapel for a Choral Workshop with Mr Pashley and Mr Scriven. They sang together, learning how to use their voices better, and they experienced what it might be like to sing in the choir stalls where the Senior School Chapel Choir lead the School in Chapel services. They also […]
Many congratulations to Matilda, Form 6, who has won three consecutive climbing championships – in Glasgow, Wales and Manchester. Matilda’s first success was in Glasgow, where she won the Scottish Bouldering Championships. She followed this up by becoming the Welsh Lead Climbing Champion (for her age group) in Caernarfon two weeks later. After a […]
The Lower School became forensic scientists for the day. We all had a booklet to complete as we went around all the activities to discover who had stolen Mr Wilson’s teddy. Everyone did finger printing, observing, ink chromatography, dental impressions and calculating height from foot size. In finger printing , we used cocoa powder and […]
William M, currently in Form 3, represented the South East at the British Gymnastics National Team Finals at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham. He was competing in the Double Mini Trampoline discipline. It was a huge achievement for him, not only to actually qualify to compete, but also to then have the confidence to march […]
After an action-packed New Pupils’ Afternoon, some current Form 4 and 5 boys and girls, as well as some of the new pupils joining us in September, enjoyed a ‘taster’ boarding night on Friday. The boys and girls all had a wonderful time playing some games on Top Pitch in the glorious sunshine before supper. […]
The Lower School enjoyed a fantastic concert given by Chamberhouse Winds this week. Featuring some of Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’, it was an excellent opportunity to hear stories and music intertwined. The narrator, Jonathan, was very entertaining and projected his speaking voice very well over the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn and piano. The […]
Whilst on the train from Schiphol to Amsterdam Centraal Station (at Sloterdijk to be exact) it suddenly struck me what an experience the members of 6Ho were about to have. Away from home on their own for probably the first time in an adult environment, the Amsterdam Trip is part of a rite of passage, […]
Four CPS girls – Baye (Form 3), Sasha, Tabitha and Sophie (Form 4) – represented the School on Sunday at the IAPS Triathlon Annual Competition at Dulwich Prep School in Kent. With approximately 440 schools nationwide involved, there was a significant increase in the number of competitors this year, including the likes of Millfield. This event is in its […]
As ‘York 2017’ motorwayed ‘up North’, the Form 5 pupils settled quietly into their i-pad and i-phone world while the teachers noisily wrestled with the pages of their newspapers. After stopping for a welcomed early lunch (just sitting, watching films or listening to music makes children extremely hungry), the coach drivers were soon exercising their […]
