The Christmas Fair was a memorable and enjoyable afternoon, with stalls, games, challenges and Santa’s Grotto. It was a fantastic afternoon and thanks must go to the ladies of the Parents’ Association for its organisation and huge success. £1400 was raised for the Children’s Ward at Milton Keynes Hospital. Thank you to everyone else who helped and supported the occasion!

A second group of Pre-Reception children wrapped up warmly for a cold and sunny walk in the woods to experience how the seasons are changing. A mug of hot chocolate warmed them up at the end before coming back to school.
On Thursday 16th November Class 11 went to The Victoria and Albert museum in London. They had a brilliant time at a workshop about the Great Exhibition in Crystal Palace and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the sculpture galleries and Cast Courts to see some examples of sculpture from all around the world, in particular a plaster cast of Michelanglo’s David. They visited the British Galleries to see examples of British design throughout the Victorian era and they were very excited to see ‘Tipu’s Tiger’ which was a favourite from a Design Technology project last year.
On Wednesday 8th November, the senior boys took part in the Inter-House Rugby competition. They performed with great skill, and all behaved in a very sporting and courageous way.
After a tightly contested group stage, Simpson and Ravenstone contested the final. After a hard fought first half, Simpson triumphed and were well deserved winners. Well done to all involved!
