Over the last few years it has become a tradition that the Boarders go to Southend on the penultimate Sunday of the summer term. They were lucky – the sun shone and they had a fantastic time at Adventure Island, the theme park they visit.

With less than two weeks to go before the end of term we have so much to do – cross-curricular day, athletic finals, the Summer Concert, swimming finals, speech day plus of course, all of the sporting fixtures still to play. I think they will want the holiday for a rest!

Many thanks to Mr Erskine-Naylor and all of the Matrons for giving the boarders such a lovely day.
