it is amazing to think that we are almost at the end of January, though both mornings and evenings are noticeably lighter now. This gives us a bit more time to show visitors our fantastic grounds and facilities, and it was good to have the opportunity to meet more prospective pupils and their families this week. We are also now doing further entrance examinations and scholarship assessments, so everything is ‘full steam ahead’ for September 2019. If you would like to know more about what we may be able to offer your child, then please either come and see us (dates and times are below), give us a call or drop us an email – our contact details are on the bottom of this page.

This Week at School
Highlights this week have included learning Chinese maths techniques with algebra and equations, and a second session on the climbing wall at the Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project as our pupils work towards their NICAS qualifications.
There is so much going on both inside and outside the classroom to give a great balance to school life. Next week, the children are going to receive some expert coaching in Eton Fives from a visiting coach from the Eton Fives Association – it really is ALL GO!

It was a pleasure to open our doors to prospective families this week.
