Headmaster’s Blog 21.05.2021

In spite of what you might have been led to believe by the icy temperatures, howling gales and torrential rain, this is the ‘summer’ term and it is a reminder of the fact that like the seasons the school year cycles round with unstoppable (and sometimes remorseless) regularity.  Whilst they haven’t left us yet and I will be saying a proper thank you to Monty and this year’s prefects after half term, I am delighted to announce that the Head Boy for next year will be Maxime, ably assisted by Henry and Seb as Deputy Head Boys.  I am very proud of the fact that there was such an enthusiasm and high standard of applications. I know that everyone in the prefect team will make a significant contribution to life at the School.

Talking of contribution to the community, my colleagues and I on the Leadership team were fortunate enough to receive a presentation from a number of Year 10 boys who are the School’s Diana Award anti-bullying ambassadors.  The boys are working through initiatives for the School that encourage all of us to promote and sustain a safe, positive environment in keeping with our values and I salute their industry and drive.  I will share their introductory video in due course but they are committed to making a big impact and I am confident that they will with their excellent ideas.  Other contributions include the School Council’s plans to launch a war on waste and the pupil-led Black Curriculum Focus Group (more on this after half term).

Congratulations to a number of our enterprising Lower Sixth students who took part in the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) BASE National Business and Accounting competition. They formed themselves into teams, prepared and presented on a topic relevant to the “world of business and accountancy” and competed with schools across the country. They are to take part in a virtual work experience programme as part of their prize.

With best wishes for the weekend, David.
