Head’s Welcome

Patricia AdamsFollowing government guidelines, we were delighted to welcome Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 students back on 1st June, and have worked hard to ensure the safety and comfort of all the students and staff, with appropriate social distancing and rigorous hygiene measures in place. From 15th June we welcomed back Year 10 and 12 students and on 23rd June we welcomed back Year 3 and Year 4 on 25th June. Year 5 will join us before the end of term.

All our other students are receiving their education via remote learning using our Firefly VLE, Microsoft Teams and email with work sent by teachers. Students are still working to their usual timetable and all students across the school have access to work and help from their teachers, whether they are at school or at home.

Our warm and inspiring environment encompasses a supportive framework where our students, whether in Pre-Prep, Prep, Senior House or Sixth Form, are encouraged to take risks, be creative, think for themselves, learn to make good choices and to embrace a challenge.

All of our students are encouraged to aim for excellence in all of their pursuits, to be kind to each other and look for opportunities to make a difference in the wider world. Students here ‘dream big’ we prepare our students for their future lives and careers to be compassionate, caring and confident young women.
