We were delighted to welcome all of our families back to school this week - and to see our 46 new pupils looking so smart in their new blazers.

The skies have been blue above Carswell Manor and there has been an air of excitement with classmates being reunited and new friendships being formed.  The children have, as ever, thrown themselves into every activity on offer, with rugby and hockey tackles being made, choirs and orchestras in full swing, art and DT projects underway, Shakespeare rehearsals commencing, after-school clubs busy, and boarders settling back into Boarding House life.  And, of course, the serious business of learning continues, with teachers delighted with the enthusiasm and focus of the children in their lessons.

As staff and children settle back into school life much akin to pre-Covid times, we are very much looking forward to a busy, fun and successful year ahead.
