'Hi' from Heads of House

Heads and Deputy Heads of Cavendish, Hunloke, Gladwin, Kenning and Turbutt houses have recorded special messages for students during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The video messages show how much we are all missing being at school, and give a glimpse into life at home for each member of staff.

Motivational messages are shared with the aim of encouraging students to do some work, keep active and stay in touch with friends and family. 


Highlights include Mr Pateman who is seen walking his three Pugs, Mr Trigg who puts in a star performance on the guitar (with cameos from Dua Lipa, Foo Fighters, Joe Wicks and more...), Mrs Elliott and Mr Holland who take us outdoors on their daily exercise, and Mr Edwards who gets dressed-up smart for 'work'.

Mrs Phipps has been getting crafty at home making tiny Scandinavian 'Tomte' - one for each House. She said: "A Tomte is a mythical character said to protect the ‘Homestead’. I'm giving one to each House as a memento of this challenging time. Each holds a rainbow to remind us of the support and gratitude that we should offer to those who give so much for all of us."
