Headmistress's Message
Dear Parents, 

At the beginning of the week we were delighted to welcome Year 8 parents to our Options Evening.  We hope that parents found the presentations to be interesting and informative and left feeling that we really do want the very best for your daughters. A full programme of support will now take place before your daughters need to make their final options choices by February half term.

On Tuesday we hosted our first coeducational Sixth Form experience day. Year 11 students came in Sixth Form attire and participated in high quality Sixth Form taster lessons to give them a flavour of daily life in our Sixth Form centre. They were also able to relax and enjoy the amazing facilities including Common Rooms and the Sixth Form Café. We very much hope the students found it to be a useful experience and will help them to make wise choices concerning their A Level choices.

We are very much looking forward to the school production of Little Shop of Horrors which takes place from Wednesday 6 October to Saturday 9 October at 7pm in the Boys' School Hall.

Have a wonderful weekend.
