    Two very special and fun competitions took place last week on Friday after school. Both were similar in that the format allowed younger and older pupils to compete on equal terms.

    I hope all the boys and families enjoyed the extended bank holiday weekend. As with all weeks this term, there are always some major events to look forward to. This week was no different with the U11s taking part in the Independent School Football Association finals and 160 boys heading off to the World Events Arena.

    It was good to see the boys and staff returning, refreshed and raring to go. The boys have very much enjoyed being outside with the chance to play football on the fields, enjoying the space and some fun competition. I have been out with the boys each lunchtime keeping an eye both on any over-exuberant tackling and to adjudicate on any disputed goal claims.

    I know that the staff and boys will be happy leaving this afternoon with the prospect of the Easter break ahead. It has been a long stretch since returning after Christmas. Whilst hard, it has also been a most rewarding term with an outstanding concert, Year 4 play and sporting successes. It has also been one of the most exhausting terms I can recall with a revolving door of staff away and exceptional demands made on remaining staff in school. I know I speak for all parents in thanking staff for all their efforts.

    I hope some of the boys will have seen the pictures in the news showing images of the Endurance, Shackleton's ship, after its recent discovery 9,842 feet below the surface of the Weddell Sea. This discovery provided the inspiration for my assembly on Monday.

    It has been a frustrating week of working from home after testing positive for Covid. The timing of my absence was all the more disappointing as I was unable to watch the Year 4 production. By all accounts it was full of bright costumes, dancing, singing and even a bit of rapping. I was told that the play really did transport everyone to a galaxy far, far away in the spacecraft, The Millennium Penguin (which even has cup holders!).

    It was wonderful to see the overwhelming and generous support to Scott House's table top sale to raise money for UNICEF. Scott's election of UNICEF at the start of the academic year proved to be remarkably prescient, providing an opportunity for all our community to support the people of Ukraine. Children are naturally generous and also eager to respond when there is need. Hopefully the money raised will make a meaningful contribution to the humanitarian crisis.

    The boys all seemed to be glad to be back and energised after their half term break. There is so much to look forward to during the next few weeks as we head towards our concert, Year 4 production and all our sporting tournaments. This week marked the first time for many months when we did not have any boys self-isolating. With the boys (and staff) enjoying the fun of World Book Day, it feels as if school is finally returning to normal.

    No doubt that at the end of the day both boys and staff will be breathing a collective sigh of relief that we have made it to half term.

    I have reminded the boys on several occasions recently that we are now deep in report writing season, thus their need to be producing their very best work.

    We are now becoming very familiar with the ever-revolving door of Covid absences. The late evenings and early mornings are punctuated by email messages announcing another case and the well-oiled system of moving to remote learning begins. A flurry of emails follow as Mrs Cowie and Ms Sayers swing into action to upload documents and prepare to support the small army of boys self-isolating.
    School, parents and boys are becoming accustomed to awaiting the confirmation of return following two negative test results and parents no doubt breathe a sigh of relief when boys finally can return.

    Mr Hymer joined our Year 5 boys for their day at Top Adventure. "This was our first day trip since the pandemic first broke in March 2020. It proved to be a hugely successful day with boys enjoying climbing, archery, water sports and laser tag. The day ended with a barbecue and cakes."
