Re: Umm - and another thing...

Bless you all... Birthday spent in the Brecon Beacons and yes, we did enjoy the hamper which had a pleasing bias to cake, tea and chocolate. How did they know?? DS spent the last three days of term at his preferred school and has to date encountered much kindness from many, not least from the other ...

Re: Best wishes to all the new second form

Lots of children (especially girls) absolutely love their time at CH. So here's a message for Bella - go with a glad and proud heart and make up your own mind! (And congratulations :D )

Re: Umm - and another thing...

DS looking over my shoulder as I write this - thank you from us both for your lovely messages. You're a great bunch of people. Will update when I'm a bit less emotional! :(

Umm - and another thing...

Been trying to work out how/when to say this - even considered not saying it at all, but that doesn't seem quite right. So - My DS & I after much heart-searching and upset decided that he should leave CH and he starts tomorrow at a local school. As many of you know, his time at CH has been difficult...

Re: Day Pupils - announcement pending

They had quite a discussion about it - whether it would alter the ethos of the school. general consensus was that it would. He seemed to think the day boys are being brought in to free up beds so that they can have more children paying full fees. I guess the thinking is that then they could continu...

Day Pupils - announcement pending

Got a text message from my DS today saying that the Head will announce tomorrow that day pupils will be admitted to CH. He was in a class where it was discussed by a member of staff. He says thay were told that Ch is losing £5-6 million per year and that if they carry on the way they are, the schoo...

Re: Early Lent Half Term

I can understand the various misgivings some staff and parents may have about fully-boarding education but if, after due consideration, they truly considered that the disadvantages outweighed the advantages, then why do they not remove themselves or their offspring from Christ's Hospital? If that's...

Re: Lent Term Snow

Well - I'm getting a bit worried as according to the latest Met Office forecast it's supposed to start snowing tomorrow afternoon. By 6pm in Horsham it's forecast to be heavy snow, 21mph winds and very poor visibility.... my car won't survive a 2 hour journey in that!
