Dear Parents/Carers, Staff and Students,
Schools are often busy places and this is certainly true of TBS. I have been struck this week by how alive the campus is with activity in what is very much a ‘normal’ week here in school. Each morning I have arrived at school to find our dedicated Senior Girls Football team and Boys Basketball team practising hard with their coaches ahead of tournaments this weekend. There have been Geography field trips running throughout the week for our Key Stage 3 students as an important part of bringing the curriculum to life. Representatives from the British Gurkas, a key part of our community, have been in school today talking to our primary students about the close relationship between Nepal and the UK, ahead of the BGN band visiting later in the term. Over the weekend, over 20 TBS staff attended Leadership training and workshops delivered here at TBS by internationally acclaimed educational leadership coach, Diana Osagie. Alongside a busy programme of external and internal GCSE and A Level exams, there hasn’t been a dull moment on campus this week!
It’s been a busy week for parents too! Thank you to those who attended Parent Information Sessions this week on the IPC in Primary and the British Education System in Secondary. Today we had the Owls Coffee Morning which was a great opportunity for parents to be updated on Owls’ priorities and to come together as a community of parents in support of the school. Thank you to the Owls team for organising today’s coffee morning and other events, including the upcoming Owls Ball on 26th January. We look forward to seeing many of you there for an evening of ‘Glitz and Glam’!
On a final note, Caro has been out of school this week having surgery. She is recovering well and hoping to be back in school on 29th January. She has been very touched by the care and concern shown by our community and would like me to pass on her thanks to you all.
