We are all delighted to be back together again! Last week was the first full week of school with all the girls and staff back on site, since 20th March 2020 – 18 months ago. Congratulations to six students in Year 13 who completed their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Gold expedition over the summer holiday. This is the highest level of award, and over an extended period of time, they need to commit to developing their skills, volunteering, and engaging in a physical activity, as well as completing a week’s expedition and a residential. In other news, we are excited that we have been able to restart our weekly visits to Roedean for Deepdene pupils in Years 4-6. Each week, they have one session of sporting enrichment, using our fields, as well as one session of academic enrichment.
And finally, it’s not too late to book your tickets for our Take Your Seat Appeal Showcase at 7pm on Friday 24 September! Launching the new seating in the Theatre, there will be performances across Dance, Music and Drama. Tickets are £15, including a glass of Prosecco, and all profits raised on the night will be donated towards the Take Your Seat Appeal. Booking is via the Theatre website: www.roedeantheatre.co.uk.
