As the new Head, I was delighted to attend my first Achievement Assembly in the Junior School. Despite being back only three days, we were inundated with achievements for a number of boys.
In a week prior to our ‘Ingram Cup’, it was pleasing to award so many ‘Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music’ certificates. We are looking forward to hearing some of these musicians perform next week.

Achintya told us all about the Nottingham Festival of Words where his poem, ‘Web of Lace’ was awarded a runner-up prize. This will be presented to him in June at Waterstones.
Congratulations went to Mr Shaw and 4S for being the first form in the School where every boy has achieved the Gold Mathletics Award. In addition, many Gold Certificates were also awarded. Keep working on this, boys!
I was delighted to see a number of boys receiving certificates for proficiency in their mathematical tables. Well done to them.
At a tournament in Liverpool during the Easter break, Akhelesh gained enough points to qualify for an England trial. We wish him the very best of luck at the trial. Although only 9 years old, Abhishek competed in the U11 age group and achieved a staggering 3 points.
Isaac and Robert were very excited to tell us about the medals that they won for their respective 2nd and 1st places in a recent Beeston Hockey tournament.
Student of the Week.
With such a short school week one might think that it would be difficult to single out one boy for this award. So, as you can imagine, it was with great pleasure that I was able to award 3 certificates! The staff and I have been so impressed with how well Charlie, James and Sandeep have settled into school in this, their very first week. This has been an excellent start for all three, and I know that they will work hard to maintain this level of effort.
