Nursery had a wonderful time at beach school this morning where they enjoyed collecting stones and making sandcastles! It was a beautiful day and everyone had lots of fun.
Beach school gives children in their early years the opportunity to learn and develop in their local coastal environment, sparking their intrinsic motivations to explore, create and be curious about the world around them.
Year 2 enjoyed an afternoon at the beach this week. They continued their learning on maps and compass points by using the sunshine and shadows to work out which direction is North. There was also an opportunity to explore the rock pools and get thoroughly wet feet!
We are all so proud of Mr Robb who has been nominated for the Best Head of a Public School in the 2020 Tatler Schools Awards!
The nomination follows a fantastic review in Tatler’s 2021 School Guide in which they review the top prep and public schools in the UK. In reference to Mr Robb, the review states “‘Visionary and passionate’ Head Douglas Robb is a familiar figure around the school, cited as being ‘a true leader and not afraid to get stuck in with the troops'”.
The 2020 awards ceremony will be hosted virtually on the Tatler Schools Instagram channel at 6pm on 6th October. Our fingers are crossed!
