Well, what an exciting week it has been at Lambrook – most particularly last weekend when, after a Saturday filled with matches, the whole school community (and its neighbours) enjoyed our fireworks spectacular. With a roaring bonfire after, it was certainly a very memorable evening for all and my thanks must go out to all those involved in organising this fun-filled event, particularly the LPTC who even managed to arrange perfect weather for the evening! 

Having lost more than 80 Lambrook pupils in the two World Wars it was only fitting that Remembrance weekend was marked so appropriately here at the school, with so many families with us for a very moving service on Sunday.  Earlier on the Saturday, we were honoured once again to hear James Shone speak of his extraordinary personal trials and how he challenged us to look ‘up’ in faith, ‘forward’ in hope and ‘out’ in love. Something for all of us to reflect and respond to. 

Our Year 8’s have had a good deal of reflection this past week with Common Entrance and Scholarship mocks; a healthy MOT at this stage of their examination journey. We have been very impressed with the way in which they have responded to the higher expectations placed at their feet as role models to the wider school community. As I write, many of them are now in the final stages of rehearsals for Macbeth; quite a challenging production to embark upon that raises questions such as what does ‘fair is foul and foul is fair’ really mean – heavy stuff but well worth supporting next week. 

Although we are still only mid November, the Christmas Fair will be upon us again next week and I look forward to welcoming you all to this special event on Saturday 26th November. This is always a very happy occasion and your support is much appreciated. 

Before that point, the Exeat weekend awaits, which I know will be very welcome to all.
