The Week Ahead 

Thursday, 9th February to Saturday, 25th February

Just when you think our performers couldn’t raise the bar any higher, along comes the astonishingly vibrant Anything Goes! Our talented pupils really put on a show to remember in this last week of half term, and it was great to see them playing to packed houses every night; it was a truly stunning show.  However, for those in exam years, this Lent Exeat marks an important moment as focus must now shift from co-curricular activity to the important academic tests ahead.  While this doesn’t mean giving up co-curricular activities, as it is of course important to maintain balance and find outlets for creative and physical energies, it does mean that now is the time to begin the final push towards the summer exams. Our Sixth Formers are now reaching the business end of their time at school and it is important they use this half term to lay the foundations for the exam season that lies ahead.  Focussed work now will reap rich rewards in the summer.

I hope you all have an enjoyable half term.
