Sports day postponed to Thursday 19th July

Dear Parents/Carers

Re. Sports day postponed to Thursday 19th July

The weather is perfect, everything is in place but alas…  One of our neighbours has shared with the school that a very large tree in their garden is dangerously leaning over our running track.  The Tree Surgeon has reported it is too dangerous to allow the full running track to be used for our planned sports day tomorrow.

Therefore sports day is postponed to Thursday morning at the same time.  This give us the chance either to get the tree felled or the running track re marked to a safe place.  Even if neither actions can be achieved we will still run sports day but will have time to augment our plans to work in as safe area of field.

Students are reminded on Thursday they are permitted to wear either school uniform or school PE kit only and bring a hat and lots to drink.  Tomorrow is normal summer uniform (no ties or blazers) and students will need books and equipment for lessons all day.

Regretfully the change in date means the children taking part in the choir tour will have already departed to Devon and so cannot take part in Sports Day.

If it is not snow or blazing heat it is a tree that blights our plans!

Presentation Evening – Wednesday 18th July

The evening will begin at 7.30pm (prompt) in the School Hall.

There is a maximum of 2 seats per family and students are required to wear school uniform on the evening.

May we also take this opportunity to point out that the hall can become quite hot during the summer months so we would advise you to bring a bottle of water.

This year we are pleased to announce that our guest speaker will be Helene Raynsford, a Paralympic British rower.

There will also be an opportunity for award winners to have their photo taken by a professional photographer. This will take place before and after the awards presentation so guests can arrive early or stay later if they would like to take part. These photographs will be available to download from our website after the event. Please visit

We will look forward to seeing families on the evening.

Re. Alert to the new Performance time for “Grease” on Wednesday 11th July

Wednesday’s performance of Grease will start earlier than originally advertised, due to the World Cup Match, England V Croatia.

New start time: 5:30pm (prompt start)

Finish time approx.: 7pm

The production will start promptly at 5.30pm and we have plans in place to seat late arrivals.  It is worth highlighting that Wokingham traffic can be quite challenging that time of the evening and so we would encourage those that can to walk.  Recognising that this start time may not be possible for some audience members we are able to accommodate some ticket changes to performances later in the week.

We will be screening the match in the hall after the performance, the audience and cast are welcome to stay for the screening if they wish.


Yours faithfully,
