Headmaster’s Notes: Doing ordinary things extraordinarily well 

23rd April 21

It has been a pleasure to welcome the Prince’s Mead community back for the Summer term after the Easter break looking so refreshed and energised for all that is ahead. The summer is often the favourite term for many and I hope that it will prove to be a very happy one for all this year with plenty returning to our calendar as we continue to prudently navigate that roadmap. The school finished the Lent term on such a high note and I encouraged the pupil community in our first assembly back on Wednesday to use their gifts extraordinarily well, both the spectacular as well as the ordinary, over the coming weeks. They all have so much to give and we look forward to providing them with the an appropriate challenge too. I am sure that this will be the case and I hope that our senior pupils, who will be moving on at the end of this term, will treasure the many highlights that will arise, with an exciting programme of events too.

It was a joy to watch the children rush out at their first break of this term on the lush green playing fields that are looking spectacular. This term Prince’s Mead is leading the charge in an ambitious return to competitive sport. We have plenty lined up for them and, already this week, children have been practising hard.  The serene sounds of leather on willow are already resonating around the school estate, as will the sounds of appreciation of the delicious match teas in the not too distant future, I am sure! Do please look out for further communications from the Sports Department in due course.

I wish you all a very happy weekend.
