MasterChef Heats

Mrs Teasdale reports ‘The Third Form Food classes held their MasterChef Heats last Friday. They were set the task to design and make a healthy, well balanced two course meal that satisfied the government’s current dietary guidelines. The standard of work was superb and I am delighted to announce that our next two contestants for the final in June are Third Former Ella L, who made her own pesto topped salmon served with couscous and vegetables followed by high protein chocolate pancakes, and Third Former Georgia S who made a superb Panang chicken with rice and stir-fried vegetables which she served with vegetarian spring rolls and dipping sauces. Fabulous cooking and two very well deserved winners. Congratulations!’

Careers Talks

There was a good turnout for Monday’s careers talk as Fleur Holcroft spoke about her role as a Media Communications Producer. She imparted excellent advice to the girls, and encouraged them to seek out a mentor and offer guidance to other girls who would benefit from their support. As well as talking about her specific career path, she also made frequent reference to essential employability and life skills.

As with all the careers talks this year, it was a very inspiring and insightful session with nuggets of gold for those considering their options or career choices.

Careers Talk

In the penultimate week of the current series of Careers Talks, we welcomed Nick Stylianou, a senior Producer for Sky News. Nick’s talk was incredibly informative and interesting as he gave invaluable advice about entering the journalism profession. He encouraged those aspiring to be a journalist to be persistent, tenacious, and dedicated; while inspiring the girls with his fascinating and remarkable experiences covering stories of global interest such as Grenfell Tower and London terror attacks.

 Checking in on Chess – Round Four

Last week the Chess Club completed round four of the UK Schools Chess Challenge. Laboratory One was a hive of activity as ten chess games took place simultaneously, most of which were very intense and closely fought. The leader is Third Former Emilia C who has twelve points after winning all four of her games, she had an amazing escape from a completely lost position with a brilliantly resourceful trick which resulted in a surprise checkmate.  First Formers Louise and Maddie J, and Fourth Former Carlota are in joint second place with ten points after three wins and one loss each. There are three rounds still to go before we crown the new school champion.  The trophy will be presented in Assembly on Friday 23 March.  Girls who finish near the top of the standings will be invited to go forward to the interschool Megafinals in April/ May.

Reaching The Summit

Mr Starnes reports ‘First and Second Form Climbing Club girls visited Surrey Sports Park last Friday, for indoor climbing and bouldering.  They have been learning the necessary knots and safety skills in our weekly sessions, and today was a chance for them to put this into practice climbing at a new venue.’

Guildford Maths Challenge at Charterhouse

Mrs Rusholme reports ‘Prior’s Field sent a team of our twelve top mathematicians to compete in the Guildford Schools Mathematics Competition held at Charterhouse. They completed four challenges – the area of tangrams, estimating the number of balls on various shapes, a mathematical puzzle relay race and finding the value of symbols in a grid. They worked together brilliantly as teams to correctly solve many of the puzzles.’

Some of the Sixth form girls played important roles when they attended the Julia Huxley Lecture, interviewing Dr Maggie Aderin Pocock MBE, entertaining and hosting the VIPs, and ending the evening with a brilliant vote of thanks by Bea, our Head Girl.

Lower Sixth girls were given a talk by Inspiring Futures on their options after Prior’s Field – including University, Degree Apprenticeships, entering the world of work, GAP years.
