Visit from the Book Bus Thursday 13 June
A quick reminder that on 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 round and purchase any books they would like as well!
Year 5 and 6 Production - Dragon Days - Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 June
The end of the Summer Term is approaching and so is the Year 5 and 6 production - 'Dragon Days'. There will be two performances taking place in the Senior School hall as follows:
Wednesday 19 June - 2pm
Please arrive at the Senior School Reception no earlier than 2pm for a 2.15pm start. Light refreshments will be available upon your arrival at 2pm in the Senior School Hall. Due to Senior pupils' lunchtime and therefore the need to adhere to safeguarding requirements, unfortunately, we cannot accept your arrival before 2pm. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
Thursday 20 June - 6pm
Please, collect your child/ren at 3.45pm and return them to RH7 at 5.15pm to enable them to get dressed and ready for the evening performance. Once you have dropped your child/ren off, we would request that you proceed to the Senior School, where (weather permitting) drinks and canapes will be served on the lawn before doors open at 5.45pm so that you may be seated for the show which will commence at 6pm.
To reserve seats for each performance, please follow this link. Due to fire regulations, we are only able to offer two seats per family per performance.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all.

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.
New Music Administrator Role
We would like to make you aware of Gemma Fishwick, our new Music Administrator. Gemma will be responsible for all day-to-day administration of peripatetic lessons (including Speech and Drama) on Tuesday-Friday on a part-time basis. Parents are very welcome to contact Gemma - firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries, along with enquiries about pupils wanting to start lessons next term. You may still contact Dr Isom, if needs be, email@example.com with any other questions.
Don't forget - Get Sorted!
Mrs Hancock runs an early morning organisation session in ICT A from 8.00 until 8.20 a.m. These will run each Thursday morning. This is an opportunity for students to get help with sorting their books, gluing in work, organising online files and anything else they need support with. I’m looking forward to seeing the students bright and early! Mrs Hancock
