This week has been anti-bullying week, and across the country schools have run a range of different events to highlight ways of preventing the bullying of young people and emphasising the importance of being upstanders, not bystanders. The week at Wetherby Senior started with odd sock day, with lots of interesting and colourful socks on show, and culminated with our anti-bullying ambassadors leading a thought-provoking assembly on Friday afternoon. Well done to the boys involved – it’s not an easy task to address the entire school at assembly, and many thanks to Mrs Atkinson for co-ordinating the events during the week.

On Tuesday, I went out to Ealing to our sports facility with Messrs Lawrence and Sullivan to meet with Shaun Justice who is Ealing Trailfinders’ facility manager. The purpose of the visit was to view the very impressive new £4m indoor facility that has just been finished and will be opened later this month. It is a fantastic addition to the offering there and adds another option for the Games staff to take advantage of in continuing to provide a terrific sporting programme for our boys. Seeing again the quality and variety of what is on offer, I was reminded of just how fortunate we are to be working with a professional sports club. It means that our boys really do have access to some of the best pitches, facilities and coaching in London. I am confident that our partnership with Ealing will continue for many years to come, and many more Wetherby boys will benefit from it.

The remaining weeks of term promise to be busy with the PTA organised Quiz and Curry night next week, followed by our first Friday Night Lights when Wetherby Senior’s First XV take on Sevenoaks under the floodlights at Ealing Trailfinders. The eagerly anticipated Upper School Production, Neville’s Island, debuts at RADA the following week. It will lovely for the boys to return to live performance in front of a live audience.

With best wishes for the weekend.
