Make a Difference Day 2019 (MaDD) - Wednesday 2 October 

We confirm that early morning and after school wrap care will run on this day if you need to use them.  However, please ensure that your child/ren are pre-booked.  The school buses will run in the morning and in the afternoon as normal and the late shuttle bus to Sevenoaks Station at 5.30pm will also run. 

Hopefully you have received letters about the sites that have been allocated to your son/daughter. Apologies for any delay but this was unavoidable following the loss of the internet from Thursday afternoon. 
The Lead Teachers of each site will be giving presentations for the Senior School MaDD sites on Monday morning in tutor time (i.e. 8.20am-8.40am). Please see the attached list of where each site presentation is taking place. So please let your son/daughter know that they should go directly there first thing on Monday morning, instead of their tutor time.
Please also try to ensure that they are in school on time for these presentations. If they are unavoidably late they should speak to the the Lead Teacher during the day.
Many thanks again for all your help and support for this Make A Difference Day - I hope all pupils get a lot out of this day as well as making a difference to others.

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 check the timetables and if you do not see your child's name please let us know at  

Co-Curricular Clubs and Activities

Our tremendous array of clubs and activities is well underway this term, with students enjoying the full range, whether it is sport, music, drama or cookery!

Please may I remind students that if they have signed up to a club, attendance is compulsory. If a student is unable to attend a club session, it is essential that the club leader is informed in person or through a parental email so that it does not go down as an unauthorised absence. Staff go to great lengths to provide a wonderful co-curricular programme and must be sure of their attendees every week.  

Make A Difference Day - Clubs and Activities

Please note that on Make a Difference Day next Wednesday 2 October, all clubs and activities are cancelled with the exception of Taekwondo Action Acorns, Tap Dance, Modern Dance and ACE Gymnastics. The leaders of these paid clubs will contact you directly to find out whether you will be in attendance on MAD Day. Please respond as soon as possible so that they can plan accordingly.
