    We will need lots and lots of cakes for the day. Please bring or send them to the school by 12 noon on Saturday 11 November (you can also bring them in on the Friday afternoon).

    If you need help to get your jumble in we can arrange a pick-up for you. For pick-up or to sign up to help, please contact Mary at



    PARENTS' FORUM - Sex and the Smartphone Generation: How to Talk Openly with Teenagers

    Tuesday 28 November 2017, 7pm - 8.30pm (with bar from 6.30pm)


    Today’s kids are navigating pressures from social media, sexting and readily accessible porn that we as parents never had to contend with at their age – and (unbelievable as it may sound) they look to us as a kind of moral compass. The best way to shore up their resilience is by being as open as possible, and by talking with them early and often.

    But having the conversation doesn’t always come easily. Come along to our topical Parents' Forum to find out more - we have a great line up!




    MORE@MORO - last raffle prizes to be claimed!

    We've not yet heard from the winners of the Urban Calm Teen Yoga voucher (B1) or the lovely holiday home in Languedoc (C6). If you hold the voucher you received on the night, please email Imogen at:


    Best wishes, and we hope to see you at an event soon!
