Spring has Sprung!

Spring has Sprung!


Hopefully this will be my last blog of the winter as the clocks spring forward next weekend. Don’t forget to adjust your clocks before you go to bed on Saturday night otherwise you may be late making breakfast for your mum on Mothering Sunday. Let’s hope this marks the end of the stormy weather, and that Doris isn’t sending one of her sisters over!


We played our last 1st Team football match of the season this week when we faced Westminster School. Unfortunately, due to a number of unforced errors, we were unable to pull back from defeat. It was a shame that we had to end the season in this way, as we have performed well. The season will hopefully be rounded off by House football on Friday and Saturday. The weather forecast is currently for sunshine, unlike the forecast for Wednesday’s House cross country when it is due to lash with rain!

Every week, this term, we have been updated on adventure traveller, Charlie Walker’s expedition. Charlie and his team are currently in Vorkuta, in Russian Arctic. Charlie had to turn back and regroup, due to fuel issues and sore feet!

If you want to follow Charlie’s expedition his website is:




I was disappointed by England’s last performance, against Ireland in the Six Nations Rugby Championship, where a score of 9-13 meant that the record of 19 successive wins was not secured. However, Eddie Jones did succeed in completing a run of 18 wins and securing the title.
Seussical the musical has been a success this week, with many boys enjoying the full theatrical experience, as audience or, for many, actors. I was fortunate to be involved in the technical side of this production, which involved overseeing the many lighting and special effects for the show. This involved a great deal of concentration from Aarin and me, working together to make sure that we didn’t miss our cue!



Finally, good luck to all of the Year 8s facing their mock common entrance exams this week.
