A Message from Ms Cordrey
I would like to sincerely thank parents and pupils for their support through this difficult time. The messages, gifts and comments are truly appreciated, particularly the array of food this past week. I cannot thank you enough; it gives me strength and lifts my spirits.
Have a wonderful half-term.
Year 5 and 6 - Sports Awards Evening Tuesday 11 June 6-8pm
We very much hope that you will be able to attend this event with your child/ren. The plan for the evening is as follows:
- Please arrive at RH7 Senior School at 6pm where drinks will be served (weather permitting) on the top rear lawn
- The awards will commence at 6.30pm and will finish around 7.30-8pm.
- Due to fire regulations, seats are limited to 3 per family (including your child/ren)
We would respectfully request that you do not arrive earlier than 6pm as we need to allow catering and the Sports Department sufficient time to prepare for the event after the school day.

Visit from the Book Bus Thursday 13 June
We are very excited to announce that on the Thursday 13 June the Book Bus will be visiting Radnor House. This is part of our continuing push to promote literacy and reading as well as providing an opportunity to stock up on books before the Summer holidays! Classes will have a chance to board the bus in groups and discover a new read and buy a book or books there and then. Prices begin from around £3.00. After school, parents and carers can have a look and purchase any books they would like as well. More information will be given out closer to the time.
Performing Arts Timetables
The Performing Arts Timetables are available here. Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change. Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom. The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.
Please note there have been some significant changes to timetables after half term to accommodate trips and exams. Please check, especially, Speech and Drama.
Please be aware that as the weather becomes milder the risk of ticks increases. There is a risk of Lymes Disease and other infections from the bites so it is important to check and seek medical advice if a tick bite is found or suspected. There is various advice online, but please find attached a government advice leaflet for you to refer to. It is important for pupils to check or be checked after playing in long grass. This should not be a reason to avoid spending time outdoors, but it is important to be aware and to respond appropriately. With this in mind, please ensure all pupils bring long trousers
Summer Touch Typing Courses
If you struggle to get along to the two school TTRS Typing sessions then you may want to learn during the summer holidays. Short, intensive courses are available to learn this most useful life skill.
If you would like to know more, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org or have a look at the attached flier and booking form.
This is a great way to learn!
