Annual Art Exhibition
At last week's Annual Art Exhibition we enjoyed a much higher than expected turnout. Thank you to everyone who came along. Many of the visitors commented that they were amazed at the quality and diversity of the work. We will, of course, feature some of the great art and design in the next edition of Personal Best.

National Educational Excellence Award
On Thursday evening we received the national State-Independent School Partnership Award for our work with St.Gabriel's at the Education Excellence Awards at Wellington College. Alun Jones, Principal at St.Gabriel's, and Mr Peaple are delighted that this prestigious award reflects the benefits that our collaborative approach provides for our students both within and beyond the curriculum. It was an added bonus to be presented with the award by the legendary Johnny Ball, who we also hope will now provide a Mathematics Masterclass for our schools!
