The summer term, I use the phrase loosely after three days of almost continuous rain, is motoring away from us. The pace of life just seems to be relentless.

We have already had two fantastic residential trips. Year 5 spent a few days in York visiting York Minster, a variety of Roman sites and the Viking Village. The highlight for the children on this trip is undoubtedly the day they spend as Vikings when the staff become the slaves of the children. I well remember my day as a slave where things got so bad that I had to remind ‘my masters’ that normal service would be resumed as soon as we got on the bus – my life that day improved instantly!

Year 6 stayed at Rockley in Hampshire where they had a weekend trying out a number of water sports. I am very pleased that every one of them came back from that trip with a sailing qualification of some sort. Poor Miss Potts was woken up at 0530 on the first morning, little realising that this is the sort of thing excited children do!

Some of our Mathematicians in Years 5 and 6 have also taken part in the first round of a national Maths quiz. We are very proud that our Year 6 team have actually qualified for the next round. So hard were some of the questions that I had to make a discrete exit half way through so as not to be completely shown up by eleven year olds.

Our talented and scholarship musicians have recently performed in a wonderful concert in the Senior School chapel. I often have to inch myself when I am in the company of such talented children whose music making is of the very highest standard. We have also had three of our younger pupils return from the Cheltenham Music Festival laden with trophies – What a fantastic achievement.

Finally we have today enjoyed the magnificent spectacle of the Chess Competition Final. This was a very international affair with the finalists coming from China and Russia and on this occasion Russia came out on top.
