We were thrilled to welcome back the Hobgoblin Theatre Company to entertain The Lower School pupils with their performance of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ on Monday afternoon.

Being a mathematician and quite reliable with numbers, I am 99% sure that Mathematics Puzzle Day (MPD) is the most important day for the children in December… This year MPD was held on Tuesday 12th December and once again the pupils were stretched and pulled, albeit mathematically, in many directions.

On Monday 11th December, all of the boarders enjoyed an amazing Christmas dinner. The dining room looked spectacular with ruby red cloths over the tables, plus crackers and chocolates. Dinner itself was delicious: roast turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing to die for and a selection of vegetables. It was divine – better than the family […]

After a cheerful rendition of ‘Christmas has started’, […]
Form 6 were given a lecture by Albert Wood of Sensational Science on ‘Making Sparks Fly’. The hour long presentation was spectacular and pupils were given an electrifying tour through electrostatics, electric arcs and experiments in a microwave. Mr Woods boiled glass to make it a conductor, electrocuted a sausage and a gherkin. We […]
