Dave Williams, our new Director of Boarding, writes: “It was great to see so many familiar and new faces on Sunday 23 August. There was a great buzz around boarding, as students returned to see all of the new building work and especially the new bedrooms in boys’ boarding. We started the week with a big team-building evening for staff and students, and, as the week has progressed, we have been busy appointing the new prefects for the coming year; good luck to all those that applied. A few tears of missing home were seen on the first couple of nights, but everyone is now settled in again and enjoying boarding life: a big well done to all of our new boarders for settling in so quickly. Next week, we will be launching our evening activity programme and will be opening up requests for using the house tutors. I shall look forward to writing to the parents of boarders early next week to introduce these exciting, new opportunities.”
