I hope this finds you well and that you have all had a good week. Here in school, we have enjoyed a busy week with a full programme of events. Before I note some of the highlights, I must begin with a vote of thanks to all of you who so generously sent in items to Hannah House to be forwarded on to the Afghan refugees who are currently being accommodated in the Hilton Metropole nearby. A huge number of donations were taken over by the PTA and they were very gratefully received. I am extremely proud to be a part of a school that can spring into action so adroitly in order to help others. On a further fundraising note, Mrs Magee oversaw an extremely successful recycled uniform sale, raising the terrific sum of £1844. My thanks go to her and those who were helping.

This week’s theatre trip was to ‘The Mousetrap’ which is playing at St Martin’s Theatre. Returning to a familiar theme of our enjoyment of normality, it was great to chat with the boys before they went about their looking forward to an evening out, and the following day Miss Twomey made a point of coming to see me to let me know that the boys had very much enjoyed the play and had also been exemplary ambassadors for the school. My thanks go to Miss Twomey for organising, and a well-done and thank you to the boys for their representation of the school in such a fine fashion.

Over the course of the week, some Sixth Form boys have started to receive offers from different universities. Those who have finished their UCAS forms and submitted them, and those who have been applying overseas are starting to see the fruits of their labors. European destinations are already well represented with offers from IE University in Madrid, and Bocconi in Milan. Over the coming weeks I will keep you abreast of other offers as they come in, and I wish all boys well in the process.

The Music department has their first performances of the year, and I am very much looking forward to the piano recital programme on Monday afternoon, and also to the Brass Band performing in assembly next Friday afternoon to play us into the half term break.
