School Results

Congratulations to the Form Six girls who received a record number of individual place offers this year, including the offer of a Scholarship.

It is pleasing to know that Francis Holland (Regents Park), Queen’s College and Queen’s Gate offered places to all our applying pupils and Queen’s Gate also awarded an Academic Scholarship. In addition, there were place offers from Eaton Square Upper School, Francis Holland (Sloane Square), Godolphin & Latymer, More House, South Hampstead, St James and Trevor Roberts as well as Oundle School in Northamptonshire.

 

The boys did well this year too with place offers from Devonshire House, Latymer Prep, St Philips (SW7) and Westminster Cathedral Choir School and with one CHS pupil achieving the highest examination score in the Choir School exam.

All the children are to be congratulated on their well-earned success.

 

Poetry Competition Friday, 24 February & Poetry Afternoon Friday, 3 March

We are enjoying a poetry fest in School at the moment and our Poetry Competition took place on Friday. Miss Alice Olney, the Senior Mistress from Wetherby Prep, was a lovely adjudicator and judged the poems written and recited by the children in Junior One, Forms One and Two. She congratulated everyone on their presentation and good eye contact and mentioned that, even though this was their first competition, she was impressed that each of the Junior One children were confident enough to recite their poems, most from memory. Form One were praised for their smiles and their similes and Form Two for their imaginative poems and use of expression.

 

Mr Phillip Williams, Headmaster of Eaton Square Upper School (which opens in September), judged the seniors’ poems. The selection of poems was delightful and it was clear that every child had put in a huge amount of effort in finding and learning their poem. Form Six’s choices were highly ambitious and many of the recitations captivating. Mr Williams was impressed and we were extremely proud of them all.

 

Next Friday, 3 March, will be our Poetry Afternoon at the Steiner Hall when you will have the opportunity to hear each of the class poems as well as the competition winners.
