Events and Visitors
In addition to the many expeditions the girls enjoy, many groups and individuals visit the school. We welcome authors, musicians and theatre groups. The Young Shakespeare Company regularly bring their talent and expertise to Lower School classes, introducing them to the language and drama of some of Shakespeare’s plays.
The Y6 girls grow in confidence and meet new challenges during events such as The Young Business Enterprise Game. Y5 learn study skills through participation in a Thinking Skills Focus Day and Historical re-enactment events occur regularly for all the girls, with visits from a Victorian School Inspector and a World War 2 air raid warden. Book Week and a Curriculum Focus Week present opportunities for the girls to meet authors, illustrators and develop their interest in different subject areas.
Groups of girls attend events at other schools, such as maths challenge competitions, choir festivals, chess matches and debates and we are always happy to extend a warm welcome to groups from other schools who regularly attend our writers’ workshops given by authors and poets and other partnership activities.
Life in the Junior School is filled with opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. There is, quite literally, never a dull moment.
