Week 2 completed and all seems to be going worryingly well. Pupils in Years 3 and 4 have had a fabulous experience on their Forest School Day at Copsegrove Farm – so engrossed were Year 3 that they did not realise they were working in a thunderstorm. Great excitement on Tuesday lunch time when pupils were trying to convince me, with very limited success that a tree in the distance was on fire because it had been struck by lightning.

We had our first round of hockey and rugby fixtures and I was so impressed that the children kept going in Carribeanesque heat – I almost felt sorry for them but not quite!

On Saturday morning the Year 8 pupils were busy working as a journalisitic team, interviewing all sorts of people. I was witness to a hilarious interview with Head Girl and Head Boy where among other things I learnt their most embarrassing moments – Speech Day fun here we come! To my horror, I too have just had to suffer an interview about my most embarrassing moment as a Headmaster.

Huge excitement in the afternoon with the arrival of Hollie Webb, Olympic Gold Medallist in the GB hockey team and the player who scored the winning penalty in the final. She was brilliant with the children and signed her autograph ion so many weird and wonderful things and gave the girls an afternoon that they will never forget.
