House Update 12th March 2018

Last Updated: 12/03/2018 15:37:05

Dear All,

It has been fantastic week for School House, with the members of the house demonstrating skill and stamina as well as academic excellence. Over the last five days we have been crowned winners of the Senior House Hockey competition and the inter house quiz competition.

The hockey team of Euan Vaughan-Hawkins, Anders Giles, Joe Houlcroft, Charlie Smart, Tom Maidment, Ben Turner and Liam Holland-Bunch, were comfortably captained to victory by Will Randall, in a competition where they won all matches except for one (which was still a draw), asserting their dominance over all the other male houses in the school. The team looked calm throughout, and appeared never in doubt that the victory was theirs for the taking. The Junior House Hockey team were less successful, but a fantastic effort from those involved with a strong win against Walters in their final match.

On the intellectual side the team of Liam Holland-Bunch, Archie Holder, Tom Chapman, Zef Ruben and Harry Richards stormed to victory in the first ever; "Question of House" quiz competition. The speed on the buzzer and sheer depth of general knowledge that the team displayed was quite incredible. The team was perfectly balanced and with the combination of Archie's wealth of knowledge and ability to cram on great artistic works, Tom Chapmans ability to recall any fact about music, whether classical or modern and Harry "chickpea" Richards being able to recall the more obscure facts at the drop of a hat, it is no surprise that Lyttelton struggled to get an answer in. A mention must go to Max Rusling, who was part of the team in the first round, helping ensure that School House made it to the final.

Earlier in the week Archie Holder and Sam Ison had also been busy preparing for, and performing during Senior House drama, and with a little improvisation gave a fantastic performance, and were as ever a true credit to the House.

Next Tuesday will be a slightly later finish for the boys of the house as we have organised the bubble football to run from activities until roughly 8pm, which will include pizza after the game. For the L6th we will ensure that all are finished in time for the futures presentation which begins at 7pm, so they won’t miss out on either.

The bustle of this term continues on this week, with the boys having the 1.2 race on Friday lunchtime, inter house football on Saturday and an own clothes day on Friday (which will require a donation of £2).

If anyone could make a donations (chocolate/sweets) for the tombola before the end of next week, we would be very grateful.

Future dates for your diary:
• Thursday 15th Mar - Whole School PA Liaison.
• Friday 23rd Mar - School House Charity tombola.
• House Breakfast and presentation of house donation to the basement project representative 11th May 2018.
• School House PA meeting in School House Monday 4th June 19:30 – 20:30
• School House end Fish and Chip Supper Wednesday 27th June 18:30 – 21:00

I have attached a link to some photos of the teams mentioned.


Kind regards,

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 (http://www.bromsgrovebasementproject.org.uk/get-involved/our-story/). 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
