Dear Parents,

I had a very enjoyable time as the guest of honour at the King’s College La Moraleja Speech Day earlier this week. As well as my speech, I spoke with many children and parents there – it was interesting to meet so many from our beloved Murcia!

Meanwhile following the eventful General election in the UK, here at school, we have enjoyed a relatively quiet week before the large number of shows and events next week.

As always a few things…



We have made a number of ‘internal’ appointments to middle-leadership positions within the school. You will be aware of some of these already. However, for your information these are:

Mr Jones Head of Gaudi House
Mrs Raspison Head of Cervantes House
Mrs Bengtsson Duke of Edinburgh Award Coordinator
Miss Shaw Acting Literacy Coordinator
Mrs Ryan Head of 6th Form
Miss L. Williams Head of Global Communications


There will be some more internal appointments in the future as we expand our Pupil Voice initiative.


School Calendar for next year

Please be advised that the school calendar for the whole academic year 2017-2018 will be available shortly on our website in the usual place.


School Shoes and School Uniform

Due to some concerns raised regarding appropriate footwear, we have amended the website accordingly to describe shoe styles that are acceptable.



This coming week there are a lot of things going on!
