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.
Junior School Open Morning, Thursday 15 May 9.30am-12pm. Register at email@example.com
