Lots of visitors to the school this week have enjoyed looking round our facilities. We were delighted to welcome the year 6 families who have places with us for September, hearing more about the exciting opportunities they can look forward to as Pinner High School students. On Thursday we had 300 visitors interested in joining us in the future. Our current Year 7 students were brilliant tour guides, and lots of visitors commented on the obvious pride they have in their school.
STEM students in Year 8 are out of school today on an enrichment trip, seeing Science and Engineering come to life outside the classroom. Also outside the classroom, last weekend saw the first Duke of Edinburgh expedition. Participants walked almost 20km on the first day, and nearly 10km on the second day, with a night under canvas in between. They cooked meals on camp stoves, with mixed results! The final qualifying expedition is the weekend after next, where we will hope for more sunshine.
We also hope for a sunny afternoon on Tuesday 9th July, when our sports day finals will be taking place. Families are invited from 1.30pm-3.30pm to come to watch. The same week is PinnFest, our annual summer celebration of the arts. No tickets are required to either event, and we hope to see you there.
