Christmas Celebrations

Dear All,
It was a pleasure to see the children in action on the stage on Friday.  All did extremely well in their Nativity Plays and we were very proud of their efforts.
Our sincere thanks go to all the parents who helped them learn their lines and the teachers and teaching assistants who have worked so hard to write words, choreograph dances, design costumes and rehearse the children.
On Monday the children tucked into a traditional Christmas lunch, complete with crackers on the tables.  Today the older classes visited Harrogate theatre to watch a production of ‘Dick Whittington’ whilst the Nursery children enjoyed a Christmas party in school.
Tomorrow morning we are holding a carol service in the Prep School Chapel and we look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible.
We wish you all a joyful and peaceful Christmas and will enjoy hearing about the holidays when everyone returns to school on Thursday 12th January.

Happy Christmas!
With best wishes,
Rob and Lottie Morse


Lights, Camel, Action!

What a performance; from dancing camels to cart wheeling stars!  Everyone did a fantastic job in the PP1, PP2 and PP3 Play.  It really was ‘Strictly the Nativity’ with all the glitz and glamour you would expect from such a show.

Early Years Nativity

What an entertaining performance—everyone really did try their best!  The children loved wearing their costumes and singing the songs and it is no easy task to stand on stage in front of so many people and they did a splendid job.  We hope you enjoyed their re-telling of the Nativity story.
