Eaton House Manor Girls School Summer Term 2016 Welcome letter

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to the Summer Term – I do hope you all had a most enjoyable Easter break. The
Summer Term is always a lovely one and I’m looking forward to spending lots of time with the girls
and with you all in my final term at the helm.

Building Works Update

As you no doubt noticed this morning the scaffolding is down and the front of the main building has
been restored to its former glory! Within the Girls’ School the loos on the ground floor have been
altered to be a little more child-friendly and accessible.
At the rear of the school the builders have maximised the time over the holidays and all the steel work
for the new building is now in place. Please do take a glance at the latest updates on the Twitter feed

We have another fantastic group of girls in our Form Six this year and we look forward to seeing them rise up to the challenges of these roles and the forthcoming 11+ exams.

Building Works

Our new classrooms, Theatre and Art Room are all completed and looking lovely! Please do join us on Tuesday 9th September for our official opening at 7.00pm but in the meantime please feel free to take a wander around the school to get your bearings. The two new KG classes and Form 1 are on the ground floor, F5 and F6 are at the bottom and top of the rear staircase, and Forms 2, 3 and 4 are upstairs above the Theatre.

The development of new office space to the side of the boys’ Prep school has begun and work will continue on this project until April.

Arrival and Dismissal

In order to ease congestion at the front door in the mornings we ask that all children entering via the main front door at 8.30 come straight through, and then shake my hand at the entrance to the Girls’ School. Miss Calypso (Assistant PA) will open the doors at 8.30am and children should then make their way to their respective schools.

All girls in the school will now be dismissed from their classrooms. They should leave at 3.30 or 4.00pm by the main Girls’ Entrance where either Miss Nicola or myself will be waiting to say goodbye. Any children departing at 5.00pm should be collected from their activity and may then leave as usual.

New Girls

We are delighted to welcome thirty four girls into our two Kindergarten forms this term. In addition we have four new girls joining in F1, F3 and F4E; this takes our pupil numbers to 147.

Staff News

A warm welcome to our new teachers this term: Miss Helen Dyson (Form 1 Teacher), Miss Laura Burroughs (Head of Games – maternity cover), and Ms Cathy Burnaby-Atkins, who joins us in October (Learning Support – maternity cover).

We have four new Assistant Teachers: Miss Louise (KG1), Miss Marianna (KG2), Miss Charlotte (F1) and Miss Ellie (F2). Miss Ellie gained her PGCE from Buckingham University whilst teaching at Stowe, and so in addition to being the F2 Assistant Teacher she will also teach Religious Studies to our Senior girls.

Finally we have two new Gap Assistants: Miss Kitty (Tudor Hall) and Miss Olly (Marlborough).

Congratulations to Miss Georgie and Miss Georgina who both got married over the summer holidays, and to Miss Charlotte who got engaged!

Parents’ Information Evenings

There will be a Parents’ Information Evening for all forms on Thursday 11th September at 6.00pm. This will be followed by a drinks party for parents with daughters in Kindergarten. The evening will provide an excellent opportunity for you to get to know your daughter’s new form teacher and to gain a good understanding of the expectations and routines within that year group.

Our Senior Schools Information Evening will take place on Tuesday 30th September at 6.00pm
The evening will start with an information session for Form 4 parents about the process of applying to Senior Schools and Mrs Jayne Triffit, Headmistress of Woldingham School, will follow with a talk open to all interested parents in Forms 3-6. More details will follow nearer the time.

Early Morning Room and Homework Class

Early Morning Room will continue to run every day between 8.00 and 8.30am for all year groups, and Homework Class will run from 4.00-5.00 pm on Monday to Thursday for girls in F4-6.

If your daughter requires a place in either of these sessions please email Miss Nicola (nborthwick@eatonhouseschools.com) giving your daughter’s name and the days required. There is no charge for these sessions but places will be limited.

All girls attending the Early Morning Room should go straight to the basement with all their belongings and register with our Gap Assistants Miss Kitty and Miss Olly.

Calendar

Your daughter will bring home a calendar with all term dates and activities. We have many exciting activities and events planned and I have outlined some key dates for your diary below. We shall continue to fundraise for Reverse Rett this term and all proceeds from our Christmas Fair and Film Night will be sent their way. You may notice that we have been lucky enough to secure tickets to take the children to The Lion King for our Christmas Theatre trip – we have loved the pantomime at Wimbledon Theatre but we are aware that many families book that independently, so thought it would be fun to do something different!

10th November Exam Week (F2-F6)
19th November Parents’ Evening
27th November Christmas Fair (eve)
2nd December Nativity Play (pm)
5th December Ballet Presentation (am)
10th December Carol Service (pm)

 

Theme for the Term

Our theme for this term, which will be considered across all aspects of school life, will be on encouraging resilience in our girls. I have arranged for the Parent Practice to run a workshop for any interested parents entitled ‘Helping Children Cope with Life’s knocks’ on Wednesday 29th October.
We look forward to another fun-filled and productive term. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to pop in for a chat or call me. Alternatively you may email me at ssegrave@eatonhouseschools.com
