Parents Week 2019: 09 – 15 October 2019
Each year, Parents Week provides us with the space to pause, to reflect and to acknowledge the achievements of our pupils.
Our 2019 “125-Edition” of Parents Week is set to be jam-packed with an array of events and occasions to celebrate the past school year and we look forward to having you join us for this special event.
Possibly the biggest event in many of our pupil’s year, Parents Week sees our Valedictory, Induction and Confirmation Services, our Junior and Senior Prize Givings all of which are raised-up by the annual dramatic production (this year put on by the Junior School: Grease) and the Music School Concert.
Junior and Senior parent/teacher meetings will also take place as well as a 125 College Parents and Staff Harvest Table on School House Lawn on Monday the 14th.
