This week we invited parents, new families, and students, staff, and friends of the School to participate in a sports day to celebrate the final week of the academic year.
The weather was perfect and this was a wonderful opportunity for all to spend time together to celebrate what we have achieved this year. It was also the perfect opportunity for the students to compete against their parents and teachers!
James and Ahmed took up the role of rounders team captains and selected a mixture of parents, students and teachers to make up their teams. After a close game, James’ team were declared the winners.
Volleyball was the next challenge. The students naturally had the upper hand as they have been training with Mrs Hall for the past few weeks, whereas the family/staff team was fresh to the game. After two sets, with one win each (including one embarrassing defeat for the family/staff team), it all came down to the final set – like all good sports stories. Somehow, the family/staff team managed to sort out their coordination to claw it back and win the game outright – just!
Everyone involved had a great afternoon in the sun!

On Friday 5th July we marked the end of our first year. The day started with speeches and presentations of awards to students from our guests, Danny Wang, Mayor Mike Starkie, Peter Lever (OSB President).
There was also a musical performance from the students.
Following this, families, guests and staff made their way to the Quad for a buffet and a performance of ‘Romeo and Juliet a tragical comedy’ a play based on the opening chorus: ‘Two houses…’, written by our English and Drama teacher Ms Pink.
The performance was pulled together in class time over the period of a week. Students took on multiple roles for the performance and it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in attendance. More photos will follow on the website and Facebook.
We would like to wish our students a very happy summer holiday and we look forward to seeing them again with our new students in September!
