    The Power of Words

    Last Friday, we thoroughly enjoyed a round of ‘Just a Minute’ involving four of my colleagues modelling this fun competition for pupils who today represent their houses during form time. I hope there are plenty of volunteers who are prepared to step out of their comfort zone and pit thei...

    We will remember them

    The word ‘corporate’ is mostly used nowadays to refer to business, and less so in the context of corporate acts of celebration or remembrance. You probably don’t need a Latinist to tell you that it comes from the word ‘corpus’ meaning ‘body’. Yesterday, we c...

    Confident but not arrogant

    I imagine you were as struck as I was by the down-to-earth charm of 18-year-old Emma Raducanu last week.
