A shorter message from me this week as I was away from school for two days at the Boarding Schools Association annual conference in Brighton. A packed programme kept us all busy with speakers, workshops and information. This is an event valuable for sharing innovative ideas and discussing current trends and concerns. Boarding remains a popular option for parents and Prior’s Field is very much part of the modern boarding story.
Back at base, in Godalming, the school was still buzzing after PF Alive on Saturday- a fantastic event thoroughly enjoyed by the audience and, I think, even more so by the girls themselves. The joy and sense of fun was palpable, the girls giving us huge smiles as they strutted their stuff on the catwalk. This was a tremendous community event and I must thank all the staff involved, particularly Mrs Rusholme, the Music department and our incredible compere, MC Pratt. The combined contributions of staff, the PSA and our amazing caterers made the evening a great success.
This morning the Upper Sixth presented their final assembly: a wonderful celebration of the girls’ time at Prior’s Field, with a video created by our very own Holly H incorporating messages to the girls from the whole school. We will miss these young women when they leave us in the summer. We still have three weeks of their company, however, before their exam leave begins.
Today we are saying good luck to the Fifth Form as they embark on study leave. I know that the girls still have plenty of study to do between now and their well-deserved rest and relaxation at the end of June, and we will see many of the girls who are coming in for revision workshops in the next few weeks. I look forward to celebrating the girls’ achievements with them in August.
With best wishes for a warm and sunny Bank Holiday weekend
