E-News – 2 March 2018


Thank you for your understanding this week with regard to early closure and the postponement of the Parent Teacher Meetings as we contended with the ‘Beast from the East’. We very much look forward to the arrival of spring!

World Book Day 

Today we celebrated World Book Day which was a roaring success.  It has been a real celebration of literature with a colourful array of book characters filling our classrooms. From Little Red Riding Hood to Obelix, one of King Arthur’s Knights and an assortment of magical creatures, all on display during our whole school assembly, in which every child (and the teachers) introduced themselves and their characters in a fancy dress parade.

Open Morning 

You will by now have received your Paperless Post invitation.  This is a family event and all visitors are welcome, from younger siblings to grandparents.  However, the children will be in your care throughout this busy morning. Teachers and pupils are working hard to prepare the school for this annual event and we know that you will be very proud of their efforts. You may arrive from 8.30am onwards and we will be rounding up at 11.30am.  Any pupils hoping to showcase their musical talents with Dr Ashworth in the dining room should bring their instruments and music.

Tea Time Concert on Monday, 5 March from 4.00pm – 4.30pm 

We are very much looking forward to launching this new event.  Please note that due to space constraints this is by invitation only. However, we do hope that this will prove to be a successful event that we can repeat on a termly basis, allowing more of our pupils to play and sing for you.

Open Swimming for Form Two on Friday, 9 March 1.00pm – 1.50pm

Parents of Form Two children will have already been invited to observe their children’s final swimming lesson of the term at Kensington Leisure Centre.


The Delancey School Chess Challenge is well underway and will culminate with certificates and awards presented by Miss Jackson on Monday, 12  March  in our whole school assembly.

Enable Me Charity Day on Wednesday, 14 March 

Chris Jay will be returning once again for our bi-annual workshop, a half-day of events for pupils from Form One up relating to life with a disability. This is an enlightening event which has proven very thought-provoking for our pupils in the past.

Government Childcare Choices Scheme – see www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

As they say ‘every little helps’ and Connaught House School has now joined the HM Government Childcare Choices Scheme.  Please take the time to access the website and explore the support, for which you may be eligible, that in previous years has not been available to independent schools.
