In the last week of term, Year 6 presented their performance of 'RATS'. The Headmaster congratulated all the boys for what they had achieved in only 2-weeks of rehearsals. He also thanked all the staff and parents who had been involved and supported the boys; in particular, Mr Probert, Mrs Piercy, Mr O'Prey and Mrs Armstrong.

Year 4's Production - 'Wind in the Willows'

After much hard work, Year 4 presented their performances of ‘Wind in the Willows’; which parents and friends clearly very much appreciated. The Headmaster and Mrs Arney, play director, both paid tribute to the boys’ achievements; especially remembering that they are only around 8 years old! The boys also had many distractions, in the form of their academic work, and various sports matches and tournaments. Special thanks were extended to Mrs Blackford, as musical director, and to class teachers, other staff, and parents for many forms of support.
