Headmaster’s Notes: Opportunity knocks at Prince’s Mead

15th October 21

It hardly seems possible that the half term break is upon us, after what has been a very busy, but hugely encouraging, six weeks of term. We feel extremely fortunate to have enjoyed a very happy period here at Prince’s Mead. As is always the way, the children have embraced all that has been placed at their feet, both on the curricular and co-curricular fronts, showing their characteristic enthusiasm and determination in giving nothing but their best in these areas.

Lessons have been a hive of activity and it is always a joy to observe the children expanding their learning and being inspired in so many areas. With the wealth of opportunities on offer, there is so much to capture the imagination and stretch each and every pupil here. Outside of the classroom, we have been extremely busy, exploring new opportunities and activities in Forest School, producing fabulous works of art and design, rehearsing for those whole-school assembly performances, enjoying competitive sports matches, raising funds for others, celebrating Harvest time, as well as looking after our bees!

On the expeditions front, congratulations must go to our Year 5 climbers who scrambled up Snowdon today. Whilst the blood, sweat and tears left on the side of this stunning mountain will fade, the collective memories of all those involved will stay with them for many years to come. A terrific adventure.

The second half of the Michaelmas term is equally exciting, and a very special and memorable period in the school year, with every expectation that this will still be the case in the run up to Christmas this time. In the meantime, I wish you a happy and restful half term.
