How very apt that this first session of the new academic year should end with another glorious sunny day. It really does reflect the very happy atmosphere within the school and the very pleasing way the first few weeks have gone in general terms.
What is equally pleasing to me as Headmaster is the feedback I have been receiving from our most recent alumni and moreover those who have come to the end of their schooling. All our last years’ Ones appear to have settled in extremely well to their Senior Schools which is of course a relief but also wonderful news. It makes one glow with pride to learn of past pupils gaining straight A*’s at A level. I quote one Senior School Head:
“In short, your past pupils did brilliantly achieving more than I suspect even they thought possible. I would like to say that you and your colleagues must take much of the credit for this. They arrived willing to learn and inspired to think outside the box!”
This is such a gratifying message and one I was especially grateful to receive and pass onto my staff. I am reminded once again that there really are inspirational teachers at Windlesham.
