The future starts here…

Year 12 will be attending the  Norfolk Higher Education Exhibition at UEA tomorrow.  With UCAS experts, university and college representatives from over 100 institutions and industry professionals present, it gives the girls a great opportunity to learn about the many possibilities open to them after their A levels.  They will be able to attend seminars on how to choose a university and find out what life is like on a university campus as well as talk to experts about options other than going to university.

Watch this space for pictures and the girls’ feedback from the event!

Reception assembly – the pictures!

Yesterday’s class assembly by our confident little Reception pupils was a delight, as already reported. Here, now, are some more pictures from the performance. You can also see some of their colourful artwork, including brightly painted Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired giants! Thank you once again to all the parents, grandparents and family members who came – we hope you all enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and share in some of their achievements. It is great to see their growing confidence in performing and learning lines!

Reception show us how beans grow!

What makes a little bean grow into a big, healthy plant? Our Reception pupils know – and they told us all about it in a wonderful assembly this morning. Look out for more photos and a report coming soon. Meanwhile, here is a lovely picture of the children on stage, showing how their confidence is growing, and showing off the giant paintings they had done!

Thank you to all the parents who came – we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and showcasing some of their achievements. Well done everyone!

Fabulous Fete!

So many visitors commented on the lovely, friendly atmosphere at our fete today – it really was a wonderful day and,  with the sun shining warmly for most of the time, the last-minute rain didn’t dampen our spirits! Thanks to the PA for organising such a great event, and thanks to all who came – we hope you all had a great time! We think the pictures say it all….
