  • The Value of Sport

    Published 04/11/22, by Alicia Peacock

    It has been lovely to welcome everyone back to school this week and hear a little about some of the things they have been up to over the break. I hope that you all had an enjoyable half-term and spent some quality time with friends and family.  Perhaps like me, you spent some of that time enjoying at least some of the huge amount of world-class sport taking place both in the UK and around the world at the moment.

    I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate both last year’s Upper Sixth and the current Lower Sixth on their public examination success. As the first public examinations sat in two years, their results are a testament to the hard work and diligence both cohorts have displayed throughout the challenges of the pandemic.

    As term draws to an end and with the summer holidays upon us, I felt it appropriate to reflect on this British Institution. The traditional British Summer Holiday of between 6 and 8 weeks has frequently been called into question over the years.

    Last Friday for the second time in two years Warwick School was faced with the sudden unexpected loss of a much-loved member of our community. Dr Gill (Bill) was always fantastic company and the very best of colleagues, unfailingly positive, he made time for everyone.

  • The Life of Pi and Choosing the Better Story

    Published 13/05/22, by Alicia Peacock

    Recently when listening to my favourite podcast, I was reminded of a novel that I love, the Canadian author Yann Martell’s Booker prize winner ‘The Life of Pi’.  The novel was turned into a Hollywood film in 2012 for which Ang Lee won the Oscar for best director. It tells the remarkable story of Pi Patel and takes the form of an interview of the middle-aged Pi, conducted by a young Canadian author who has been told that his extraordinary life story would make a great subject for a book.

    Happy New Year!

    It has been fantastic to welcome the boys back on site this week. Although the emergence of the Omicron variant has meant the last-minute introduction of some additional mitigations, things could be significantly worse - after all, last year began with an announcement that schools would be closed! Although it’s not the start to 2022 which we had all been hoping for, if these measures help to keep your sons in school then they are the lesser of two evils.
