Sunday marked a special day in our boarding calendar as it was the annual farewell afternoon tea for our Year 13 boarders.

The purpose of the day is to say both good bye and thank you to our most senior boarders; thank you for all the effort they have put into making the boarding community the wonderfully warm and friendly place it is.  Extra special thank yous go to the boarding leadership team of Natalie, Manayka, Virali and Winne for everything they have done in the Houses this year.  We also said thank you to all the staff who make our boarding houses the happy "homes from home" that they truly are.

We had a lovely afternoon of fun and games on the Garth, as well as a delicious afternoon tea (thank you to our Catering Department for laying that on!) – and were delighted to welcome back last year's Head of Boarding, Myrtle, who is now at university in Warwick. 

Although a lovely afternoon, as always it was tinged with sadness as we have to say goodbye, but we hope you will all come back and see use next year! Good luck to all the Year 13s with the rest of their exams
