Dear Parents,

With exam leave looming for 5th Form and U6th, and Harry Liversidge in the midst of his IB exams, it truly feels like the examination term is in full swing. The House has had considerable success over the last few weeks, with Zak Ison representing Hereford and Worcester to gain his first county rugby cap, Sam Osborne swimming at the World School games in Morocco this week, and with members of the Lower Sixth being made up to be four out of the twelve School Monitors we really are doing well. Congratulations to all of those mentioned, but also all other members of the house that have supported on sports day and continued to work hard towards their academic work.

This Friday we have a House Breakfast which has been kindly funded by the Parents Association. As well as this we have Sophie, a representative from the Basement Project (our House Charity), coming into tell the boys about where the money that they have donated will be going, and explaining the great work that they do in helping homeless young men in the Bromsgrove area. The plan is to present Sophie with a cheque for the money that we have raised; we currently sit at a total of around £950 which is a fantastic amount, but if you do have the smallest amount of change that you could contribute that would see us past the thousand pound mark we, and the charity would be very grateful.

Below I have included a couple of dates for upcoming house events.

Future dates for your diary:
• House Breakfast and presentation of house donation to the basement project representative (http://www.bromsgrovebasementproject.org.uk/get-involved/our-story/) 11th May 2018.
Upper Sixth Leavers drinks at the Queens Head at 18:30 on Monday 14th May.
• 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


Kind regards,

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,
