We hope that you all had a lovely, and hopefully restful, Easter break. It is wonderful to be back in school for the Summer Term, and we are very conscious that a great deal will be packed into these last nine weeks of the academic year- where has all that time gone? For our Year 11 and 13 pupils, the examination season will be soon upon them, and some examinations have already taken place this week. We hope that all went well and wish our examinees the very best of luck for the forthcoming GSCEs and A Levels.

Year 6 – Ford Castle Trip
Year 6 had a fabulous week at Ford Castle. The girls have been well and truly tested and all have been amazing, rising to every challenge. Activities included abseiling, rifle shooting, raft-building and climbing. Their support for each other has been fantastic and we are very proud of all of them.
