The last week of Hilary term has arrived. Many of our senior students have already had their first taste of Cambridge exams, and are undoubtedly looking forward to getting stuck in to the main suite that begins on 2nd May.

This week offers an opportunity for house sports, and involves our Collegiate volleyball players in the annual Inter-High School tournament. We wish all those taking part the very best of luck.

With best wishes for a happy and safe Easter,

Anthony Wilkinson
