Speech Day on Thursday…order of events

This Thursday is Speech Day and we look forward to welcoming parents and family members. The marquee is almost set up and already looking stunning in our beautiful gardens – and with the weather set to be another hot and sunny day,  the traditional bring-your-own picnic on the lawns afterwards will be wonderful! Please remember that we close for the summer at 3.45pm after Speech Day and there is no day boarding. Here is a reminder of the order of events:

10.30am – Speech Day ceremony begins

12.00 noon – Bring your own picnic on the lawns

1.00 – 2.00pm – Upper Prep and Senior classrooms open to view displays

1.00pm -Year 10 Drama GCSE piece performance on the Women’s Suffrage movement (The Barn)

2.00pm – Tea for all

3.45pm – school closes and there is no day boarding

Setting up the marquee…

Winning, Witty Whittington!

Pupils from Years 3 to 6 delighted a packed audience in The Barn this evening with their first  performance of our Upper Prep production, Dick Whittington: a Summer Pantomime.  We won’t say too much about the show here because there is a second performance on Thursday evening – but suffice to say, those parents who haven’t yet seen it are in for a treat! A full review will follow at the weekend.

Keeping cool the healthy way!

On a blazing hot summer’s day,  what could be nicer than cooling down with an ice lolly? Year 12 decided to make their own – but using pure fruit and no added sugar, they kept it healthy, too….

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!
