  • UCAS Morning

    Published 13/06/17

    Year 12 returned to school yesterday, after their AS study leave, for UCAS morning. They started the day by setting up their UCAS accounts and beginning to fill in the key details. They then had a talk from an admissions advisor from Durham University who went through some of the dos, don'ts and common pitfalls of UCAS personal statements. This was followed by a personal statement workshop where the students put pen to paper and got down those challenging first few lines.

  • Prep annual summer outing

    Published 08/06/17

    Yesterday, Prep visited Hampton Court Palace on our annual summer outing. Luckily, the weather was fantastic considering how wet it had been on Tuesday! After a fairly long coach journey there, we arrived and after posing for a group picture in front of the palace, we split off into our groups to explore the grounds and palace.

    We explored William III's apartments, which were very lavish, Henry VIII's apartments, which were also very decadent, Henry's kitchens and the wine cellar, to name but a few. The kitchens were particularly fascinating as there were live demonstrations of Tudor cooking methods. The girls enjoyed turning the spit roast over a huge fire to help cook two very large beef joints. We all enjoyed exploring the rose garden, privy garden and kitchen garden, where lots of gardeners were busy harvesting fruit and vegetables to sell in the shop. After enjoying a tasty ice cream, we headed back to the coaches ready to travel back to CLSG, tired but exhilarated after a lovely day.
