20th October 2022

Astonishing to think we have reached half term already and what an exceptionally pleasant few weeks it has been and not just the relatively mild weather.
I just wanted to extend my thanks to the parents who loaned us their Senior School children for the Open Evening on Monday. To have what seemed like a 100 pupils volunteer was heart-warming – although I believe the dispensation given to prep may have been a contributing factor!   The pupils’ attendance really makes these events and added to a very successful evening.
I am very conscious that the children get half term and not all of the parents. Whatever you are doing, I hope that you can manage to recharge your batteries and have some good family time together.   I look forward to hearing all about the Barcelona trip!

Come and take part in the Interact Quiz Night!

On 3rd November at 6:30, come join us for a night of trivia, friendly competition for the family!   

Hosted by Interact, test your trivia knowledge as a family team to win prizes!   

Enjoy a quiz, raffle, heads or tails. Taking place in the Senior building Performance Space, all you need to bring is your brain! Buffet food will be provided, and soft drinks can be purchased on the night. You are welcome to bring alcohol for personal consumption, but it will not be sold at school on the evening. This will be a cash only event.    


Cost of entry is £5 per player and all proceeds are going to aid for Ukraine. The £5 entry fee will be added to school fees at the end of term.  

This event is for pupils and students in Year 5 and above, and their families.   

The maximum number of players in a team is 6, but please feel free to enter a smaller team and join forces with another smaller team on the night!

Thank you!

Carol Service

Wellington College has asked us to reschedule our Carol Service, the first we have been able to hold since 2019!  Our annual Carol Service has always been one of the very special highlights of the Crosfields’ year. 

Our Carol Service will now take place on Tuesday 6th December at 7.00pm.  There will be further information closer to the time but for the time being please add the date to your diaries. There will be no after school provision or co-curricular activities on 6th December beyond 4.30pm. The scheduled rugby fixture will take place that afternoon but the GCSE/Music Scholars concert will move to Tuesday 13th December. 

Mr Simon Dinsdale, Second Master

Times will be circulated after half term. 

Mr Richard Adams, Director of Music
