The start of the Summer term is always a joyous time: the longer, sunny (sometimes) days and lots of activities ranging from activity trips to sports day. Christmas and Easter celebrations give way to the prospect of playing outside every day.
Although for many pupils the exam season sets in and play seems delayed for a while, there is something about the summer months that make many feel lighter and happier.
At King's we are looking forward to our making activities planned this term, one of which will be an opportunity to share our normal school day with those considering sending their child to our Junior School.
Opening our doors to allow parents and children to take a look at what we can offer a child, how we unlock individual potential and nurture every child's talents is always an enjoyable day but even more so with our Open Morning this term, when parents can see the children at work on their normal lessons.
We are proud to guide parents and children around our historic grounds; where they will feel the unique identity and powerful sense of community and where they will meet the very best teaching staff in their fields, meaning they leave with a clear insight into how King's can really develop their child.
And it is a really wonderful morning. It is always lovely to hear the feedback from parents who visit our school about how the children behave and the experience of the unique atmosphere of King's. When you come to work or school every day you can miss the small things so to have new people come and remind you of the things you may take for granted is always a pleasure.

Speaking exclusively to Gloucester Rugby TV, Matt Kvesic explained that his decision to extend his contract at Kingsholm was a simple one and that he was hugely excited for the future in Cherry and White.
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
