After a long week of exams, pupils received their feedback from teachers this week. We look forward to reading their reports next week as I’m sure you do too. Cam and Alex also took part in the junior play which had its performances this...

We had a great afternoon on a full boarding trip to the Rainbow Run at Newquay, an event organised by local charity, Children's Hospice South West, that we have been supporting for the last three years. So far we have managed to raise £125 of the £250 target....

This week has been busy and we have been treated to some glorious sunshine too. Following last weeks internal exams the girls have been receiving exam results this week; it has been an anxious time for all of the girls but I know that, in the most part, they could not have done more and I am very proud of...

Inevitably it’s been a challenging week in Malvern House with both the Upper Sixth and Lower Sixth sitting their exams. The girls have however, been impressive, they have remained calm and reasonably relaxed which given the intensity of the week is remarkable. I think that it also helped that the sun finally came out on Tuesday and lifted everyone’s spirits....

The house has had a very studious feel to it this week and I have been so incredibly proud of how the girls have revised, coped and supported each other through exam week. Most of the girls have opted to work beyond the usual one and a half hours during prep time and the girls have understandably been anxious and nervous. The sheer delight on Anson’s face on Friday evening when I let her rip up the exam timetable was evidence enough and the relief that it was all over was written on the faces of all the...

What a busy week! With exam season in full flow and Trennick welcoming back all of the boarders, this week seems to have flown by. With extra revision sessions and academic clinics attracting those who needed some last minute preparation, the boys have had plenty on their minds. It has been lovely to ask them how the exams have gone, with the majority of responses being very...

It was congratulations to Morgan and Hector who celebrated their Birthdays during the half term break. A rather large chocolate cake was enjoyed by the boys. Poltisco shed a tear for Toony who moved into the senior boarding house early this week. As part of the continuity of a junior boarder into a senior boarder the 4th year students will be leaving over the next few weeks to move into...

On Sunday, Mrs Mulready and I welcomed the girls back to the house after half term. It was good to hear that the girls had enjoyed their break with their families and guardians. On Wednesday, Helena and Anson went to the Minnack outdoor theatre to watch Tristan and Yseult, a critically acclaimed production based on the Cornish King Mark. Thankfully the stormy weather at the start of the week had subsided and both girls thoroughly enjoyed the...

It has been a very busy week with the A2 exams starting and we have been so impressed with how hard the girls are working. The lower sixth end of year exams start tomorrow, kicking off with Biology and Chemistry which lots of them study, so we wish luck to all our students as they deserve the best. We also welcome Sophie, our gap student, who will be joining us in the boarding house until the summer holidays and who will also be able to enjoy all the wonders Cornwall has to offer....

Well this will be the last blog of the half term and I can’t believe that we only have one week left! It has been a quiet week for the majority of the girls however Lucy has been incredibly busy performing at the Hall for Cornwall in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I was lucky enough to go and see it and it was fantastic. Well done...

Truro has had some great weather over the weekend - perfect for our surfing trip today! We travelled by minibus to Perranporth for our 2 hour surf lesson. First we had to get changed and as it was sunny, pulling on wetsuits proved tricky. James and Simon were our instructors for the afternoon and really helped us with our technique. Polina was whizzing by and standing up in no time while Anna, who had been on the Portugal surf trip, was making it look effortless....

This has been a quieter week in Trennick due to the increased focus on academic studies - the exam season has recently kicked in. The 5th Year students began their study leave and have taken on more responsibility for managing their own time. At morning roll call they have been planning their day and dividing it up between studying in the library, attending lessons or clinics, or visiting the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre. So far they have all adapted well and shown good levels of self...
