    I hope very much that everyone enjoyed a restful and happy time over Christmas and that the return to school has not been too painful for your sons.

    Merry Christmas everyone

    The term is at an end, almost, nearly. I will sign-off with some loosely connected and slightly addled observations…

    I very much enjoyed Middle Fifth Parents’ Evening on Tuesday. Granted, it was perhaps not the way I would choose to spend my birthday........

    Much of our time since half-term has been spent looking to the past.

    Roman Relics
    Half-term is finally upon us and, from what I gather, will be much welcomed by boys and staff alike. The site will remain busy throughout, of course, with work progressing on Project One Campus (as well as Holiday Action, a Worcester Warriors Rugby course and various other activities).

    Everest Base Camp
    Term appears to have started well, with all the usual energy and excitement. Our new boys look more confident each day and our new staff are getting lost less frequently. I have been especially pleased with the new accommodation, albeit temporary, for Careers and Curriculum Support; the new portacabin feels like whatever the school equivalent of glamping is.

We were treated to a tale of real challenge and fun in assembly this week, as we listened to the report of the summer’s trip to Everest Base Camp – one of the most ambitious trips I can recall in my time.

    The strength of community.... 
    It has been a desperately sad week, with all our thoughts focused on Manchester, the families of the victims and a community in shock and grief, following a truly terrible crime against innocent people. The stories about how the city has responded have been inspiring and moving – a community pulling together to help and comfort each other through a dark time.
