The girls have been on fine form this week and again it has been a busy one! With the stormy weather a distant memory it seems that spring has finally sprung properly (I really hope I do not live to rue those words!) and we have enjoyed blue skies and our first BBQ of the...

It has been another enjoyable weekend on duty in Trennick House and I found myself, yet again, talking to many members of staff about what good company our senior boys are; Mr Copeland and I feel very privileged to work with such fine young men....

Earlier in the week Urko was in action for the U14 cup football game against local rivals and football college ‘Penryn’. Urko played well but the team lost their quarter final 3-1. Well done to all for progressing to that...

The week begun in it’s usual busy fashion and there has been little let up since. For Erin and Amy, who have been working incredibly hard on their GCSE drama practical performances over the last couple of months, judgement day finally...

The outing was Quad biking at the Blackwater ATV centre. After some training laps on the short course the boys were ready for action. The track was wet and muddy, the boys had a fantastic time slipping and sliding around the course. By the end of each race the boys were covered from head to toe in...

It feels like only 5 minutes since writing the first blog of the new spring term, and I’m already writing the final one before half term! It has certainly gone quickly, but with the cold weather and busy schedules, I know everyone is still well ready for the half term break and it has been lovely hearing the girls’ plans for their week off. We hope you enjoy having them home for a little...

The week begun in earnest on Monday morning and I was pleased to hear from Miss Naylor over breakfast that the wintery bugs that had plagued some of the girls towards the end of the week had passed over the course of the weekend. Better still, the sick bug that I had feared failed to materialize and it seemed we were in the clear! Bowling was reportedly a big success as was Sophie P's crafty t-shirt making...
