Zanzibar Volunteering Project 2018

Ms Desbenoit, Ms Philippou and fifteen students are travelling to Zanzibar next summer on a volunteering experience to Kijito School. In a school of over 6000 students and very few teachers, help from volunteers in teaching, renovation and sports coaching is crucial.

Please click here for more information on Kijito school. 

This is the opportunity of a lifetime for all of us and we are dedicated to making it work. We have just over a year to fundraise for our trip, which will also help us to build our team ethos.

How you can help us for FREE !!

Parent Information Evenings

This term we will be hosting a series of Parent Information Evenings: one evening for each year group.  These sessions have been designed in order to ensure good communication between home and school and to highlight key issues that we feel are essential for parents to understand in supporting their daughter at each stage of school life.

This will be a key event in the year for all parents/carers to attend.  
Students are invited to attend with their parent or carer only, in order that there is enough seating for all.

The session will begin at 6pm promptly (doors open at 5:45pm) and will be for one hour.

There will be a series of 10 minute presentations by relevant staff explaining essential aspects of the year ahead for your daughter.

The programme for each session will be advertised in advance.

We look forward to welcoming you:

Year 7 Parent Information Evening: 14th November 2017

Year 8 Parent Information Evening: 31st October 2017

Year 9 Parent Information Evening: 21st November 2017

Year 11 Parent Information Evening: 1st November 2017

Upcoming Exhibitions

May Morris: Art & Life 7 October 2017 to 28 January 2018

May Morris was one of the most important figures of the Arts and Crafts movement. A successful designer of wallpaper, jewellry and woven textiles, she was most influential as a pioneer of art embroidery – her work and expertise were in demand across the world. But her achievements have for too long been overshadowed by her more famous father, William Morris.

We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to fund this landmark exhibition, which  will be an ideal opportunity to explore the achievements of women artists from May Morris’s time to today.
