We are delighted to share that Alyssa and Elena also took part in the Honeycomb Dance Festival at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

Alyssa and Elena, opened up the festival by performing a medley of songs and dances from the Greatest Showman, with the Adele Peters Performing Arts School - they were both amazing!

Well done girls!

What a thrill for our Pre-Prep 2 children to continue their interest in fossils and prehistoric times, with a visit from Iain Wright to show his five million year old fossil of a trilobite!
The children were very excited to touch it and asked some fabulous questions: How did they all die? What did they eat? How did they get dug up?

Thank you very much to Mr Iain Wright for a fascinating talk!

We love to see our pupils furthering their passions outside of school and we were thrilled to see Arabella taking part in the Honeycomb Dance Festival at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. She danced superbly with the Thame Youth Theatre Dance group and her trio was the youngest group!
Huge well done Arabella!

We were thrilled to welcome Ashok Rathod, founder of The OSCAR Foundation all the way from a low income community in Mumbai to Ashfold today.

Ashok gave the children an inspiring talk about how at the age of 18, he set up OSCAR with the aim of engaging underprivileged girls and boys from his own neighbourhood in education. He told us how he started with just 18 school drop outs, and now there are 4,000 children engaging in OSCAR and regularly attending school.

In 2016 Mr MacIntosh met Ashok who had a dream to bring over 15 boys from the slums on a UK Football Tour. The life changing tour took place in 2017 and plans are afoot for a tour for OSCAR girls in 2023 and we are hoping Ashfold will be able to be a host school.

Thank you Ashok for making your workshops for the children so fascinating - and fun!

PP4 had the most fantastic Great Fire of London Day!

The children sewed their own aprons for the day, inspired by the baker Thomas Farriner. They wore them to make their very own buns, and enjoyed the entire process from mixing and proving, to the final bake.

The children then travelled back in time through the power of drama. The company 'Perform' came in and gave the children a magical experience, beaming them back to what life would have been like in 1666 during and after the fire.

The children finished their day in a spectacular fashion. They recreated their own Pudding Lane and buried some cheese like Samuel Pepys did. Mrs Beryl then set the model houses they had built on fire! The children were filled with awe and wonder by how quickly the flames spread, and realised how long it took to transport water back in those days to put it out! Luckily, the cheese had only melted slightly at the end.

Well done PP4!

More scholarship success for our final Form 6 candidate of the year, as we congratulate Rory on receiving a Drama Scholarship to Cokethorpe School. We were thrilled to hear how well Rory had performed in his monologue and interview last week. We loved seeing Rory in action on the stage when he confidently performed in the Form 6 production of 'Grimm and Twisted Tales'.
Huge well done Rory - we are all very proud of you!

*** More Scholarship News ***

We are thrilled to announce the fantastic news that Head Boy, Callum has won an Academic Scholarship to Abingdon School. Callum so impressed in the very demanding series of exam papers, that he was awarded one of Abingdon's most prestigious awards, a Lady Wantage Scholarship.

He did particularly well in his scholarship Latin paper and also shone in Maths and French. Callum has worked conscientiously in each and every lesson, as well as in holidays and so it's great that all his hard work and dedication has been rewarded.

We are extremely proud of this young man, as this recognition is well deserved.
Huge congratulations Callum!
