School News

We are delighted to announce that Clarence House School, for girls aged 7-11, will be opening in September 2016. Over the years many parents have

asked if we could extend our provision for girls beyond Year 2. So I am delighted to be writing to inform you that we are indeed starting a new Preparatory School at Clarence House in Hampton Hill High Street from September 2016.
This building will provide an ideal elegant, spacious and welcoming base for girls in Years 3 -6, whilst at the same time being in close proximity to our other sites. Our intention is for this to provide an additional option for girls leaving Nightingale Road, for whom entry will be guaranteed. Any additional spaces will be allocated to external applicants who will be assessed and expected to perform at the same high level as our own Year 2 pupils.

The School will be a place of opportunity, learning, imagination and celebration of the individual. Our curriculum will retain its strong traditional academic focus together with emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) recognising that it is crucial for all young people, regardless of their future career pathway, to have the STEM knowledge and skills required to be informed citizens in an increasingly scientific and technological society.

Jack and Jill will continue to operate in exactly the same way for children in our current age range and, as the new school will only cater for one class per year group, we will prepare girls for assessment at a variety of schools at the end of Year 2, with the expectation that parents will have the same range of choice at this stage. Emphasis will continue to be placed upon working with parents to ensure girls achieve places at Prep Schools in which they will thrive and achieve highly. However, we also very much hope that a proportion of parents will choose to remain with us thereby allowing us the opportunity of working together to educate and nurture girls from 2-11 years.

One of the themed weeks for Year 2 this term is Fitness week. The girls have taken part in many health related activities such as

finding out about healthy meals, the importance of washing your hands regularly and improving measuring skills through sports activities in the playground.

We measured the longest throw in the class and found out how many star jumps we can do in one minute. The girls have inspired each other by sharing the wide range of activities they enjoy from hula hooping to tennis! Wednesday morning was the much anticipated visit to The Little Gym in Hampton Hill. The girls took part in a healthy quiz and set goals to improve their own fitness levels. They also spent time in the gym learning how to do somersaults, balance on beams and swing on the bars. They all enjoyed a healthy snack and had plenty of water after their hard work in the gym.

Fitness week has been a great success and we hope the girls will carry on eating healthily and exercising regularly- they intend to encourage their families to take up some new sports too!

Many thanks to The Little Gym for providing such a fun filled morning.


Languages Week started with an interactive session involving parents and Year 2 girls. We were delighted to welcome so many parents to the classrooms and

the girls were most interested to learn more about the different languages throughout the morning.

They were amazed to discover that Tamil has 247 characters and enjoyed writing their names in the beautiful Tamil script. We were keen to discover which languages had the same letters as the English alphabet and we found out that German, Shona from Zimbabwe and Italian had mostly similar letters. The Korean characters were quite simple to write and we learnt that they use 14 consonants and 10 vowels.

Thank you to all the parents who came in to school to share their home language with us- we really enjoyed it.
