Careers and Network Evening

Thank you to all the parents who have already volunteered to come and support our Careers and Network Evening on Thursday 5 March.  However, we still need more!

We are inviting all of our Year 10, 11 and 12 students to this evening and Year 13s can also come along.  It is a great way for them to hear more about people's experiences of moving from A levels, to University, into their first careers and how they have progressed and moved between careers ever since.  In some cases there will be specific careers that will be of use to the students, but in many cases general advice and guidance will also be gratefully received and incredibly useful.  So if you are available and willing to give two hours of your time to help give some advice and guidance to our pupils and help them develop a sense of the 'world of work' please contact Emma Hanrott on ehanrott@radnor-sevenoaks.org

Our Year 11s and Year 12s are also going to be enjoying a week of work experience on the week beginning Monday 22 June.  If you or your business are willing to offer a work experience placement for that week could you also let Emma Hanrott ehanrott@radnor-sevenoaks.org know and she will pass it on to our Head of Careers, Mrs Read.

Many thanks for your help and support - David Leddington, Head of Sixth Form

3rd Annual Radnor House Golf Day - Sunday 14 June 2020

After the huge success of previous events where we have raised £4500 for our school charities, we are looking to hold our 3rd Radnor Charity Golf Day on Sunday 14 June 2020.  This year's event will take place at Farleigh Golf Club in Warlingham.  This year's charity is MacMillan Cancer Support - a charity close to our hearts in the Prep School. 

This year, we are inviting as many people as possible to attend, so if you are not a golfer, you will be still more than welcome to attend the dinner and raffle prize draw afterwards.  Hopefully this will encourage families and friends to all come together to support this fantastic cause. 

If you are interested in being a part of the day, please can you fill out the feasibility form attached here.  There is no obligation to take part once you have completed this form, but it is important for me to gain an idea on initial numbers. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Mr Woodward (awoodward@radnor-sevenoaks.org).

Eco School’s Green Flag Award Programme

Thank you to all families who are taking part in our Energy Awareness project at home linked to the Eco-School’s Green Flag Award Programme.  If you have a smart meter at home and are recording the amount spent on energy on a daily basis for 7 days, at the same time each day maybe just before they go to bed, it will soon be time for your children to come up with ideas of how you could reduce the amount of energy used at home.  By making some simple adjustments we hope to see a reduced amount spent, reflected in the smart meter recordings for week 2, again recorded at the same time each day.  These results will be used to help children understand how the smallest of adjustments can make a substantial difference to the energy consumed at home, through statistical analysis of the data collected and returned to their teachers at school.  This data will be used anonymously of course.  Thank you in advance to those able to support us in our Eco-schools programme.

Maths Week - Money, Money, Money!

This year's Maths Week is based on the theme of money and will take place on the week beginning Monday 3 February.  We have some great events already planned including a theatre company coming to visit as well as volunteers visiting from NatWest Bank to discuss being responsible with our finances.

On Friday 7 February, the children are asked to come into school dressed up with a maths theme - anything money related would be incredible, but calculators, maths wizards, dominoes, protractors, numbers are all fantastic possibilities.  There will be prizes for the best costumes in Lower Prep and Upper Prep. 

If you have any questions about the week itself, then please contact Mr Woodward (awoodward@radnor-sevenoaks.org)
