Dear Parents,

The final preparations for House Song are being put into place and the boys are sounding in fine voice. This week coming will prove to be incredibly busy for the House, on top of the usual pre-holiday excitement, we have House Song on Tuesday, Senior House Rugby Wednesday and Junior House Rugby the day after. The boys are definitely beginning to feel ready for the end of term, and I'm sure after this week they will collapse for the first part of the holiday.

Mrs Hibell and her helpers are busy organising the prizes for the House tombola which we will hold on Friday, and we will start selling ticket for this from tomorrow. If you do have anything else that you would be willing to donate, please feel free to keep sending them in - the more prizes we have, the more chance we have of raising a good amount of money for the Basement project ( We will remind boys to bring in money to buy tickets (I'm afraid we're not contactless yet), but if you want a way of getting rid of your old pound coins (or ten pound notes if you feel particularly generous), I know the boys enjoy the excitement of trying to win, and it would be great to make as much as we can for this great local charity.

Before half term I will send out details about the paint balling and quiz night, so that we can hopefully collect in deposits for these events straight after half term.

As before, below are some dates for the remainder of the term, with one addition which is a Sunday Remembrance day service that all boys are expected to attend.

• The next Parents' Association meeting is Monday 6th November at 19:30pm, and we always welcome new members.
• Remembrance Day School Services: 9.50am and 10.55am, Sunday, 12 November 2017.
• Friday the 17th November there will be a School House Parents' Association Quiz night held in the hospitality suite (details to follow).
• We have also placed a deposit down for a paint balling trip on Sunday 3rd December which the boys seem very excited about (details to follow).
• Finally, at the end of term the PA will host Mulled wine and mince pies - 15th December.

Kind regards,

Mr T Clinton

Dear Parents,

The House was in great spirits last week, and it was fantastic to have the new arrivals into the Lower Fourth. The first week has already seen its successes for School House, and by Friday morning three members of the House had achieved commendations; congratulations should therefore go to: Alex Berrow, Jakob Heptinstall and Ed Mooney for such swift work in being rewarded in the first four days.

I must thank the PA who set up and ran the tea and cake afternoon on Friday, and I appreciate that so many of you came in to say hi.

In this morning's Routh Assembly, School House had an amazing representation; Ben Turner, Tristan Hall and Harry Whitfield were awarded their academic scholarships after an almost clean sweep of A* grades at GCSE. Only a handful in the school gained this recognition, with School House being the best represented.

Hamish Sutherland, Jeffery Soo and Luke Weller were also congratulated for their hard work and performance with the Chicken Race Car; and a special mention must go to Hamish, who achieved the fast lap award.

Kind regards,

Mr T Clinton

Dear Parents,

This week has been slightly quieter in house, but still some achievements of note. On Friday the awards for most commendations went to Hugh Abrahams, Ed Rosbrook and Hamish Sutherland for achieving three or more commendations within the last week.

Monday saw a large number of the House participating in Sports Day. All the members of the house worked hard and for a small number of boys we managed to field a man in every event (bar one). The day saw Harry Liversidge awarded the Victor Ludorum for the best performance from a male U20 competitor, for his three first places finishes in the hurdles, triple jump and 200m.

Today's Routh Hall assembly saw the signing in of the new School Monitors, as a house we were incredibly proud to see Harry Liversidge signed in as a monitor, and although I believe that many of the L6th from House would make fantastic monitors and leaders of the school, there is clearly a limit to the number of young men and women who can be awarded this position.

I have placed some photos on the School House website of sports day (click here), should you wish to have a look through.

Kind regards,

Mr T Clinton
