A week of old and new: work is underway on the new Design Technology facility, and at the Pinner Old Students annual visit to the school at the weekend, memorabilia on display from the original opening of the school in 1937. I very much enjoyed meeting former students and staff from Pinner County, Pinner Grammar and Pinner Sixth Form at the reception. The link to Pinner High School is a living one, and brings to life the traditional values I often talk about with parents. Taking place the same week as our refurbishment is appropriate, as Pinner High looks to the future; to mandarin teaching, integrating technology into school life, and the excitement of a growing school.
Another group of families came to Pinner High last week following the offer of a place in September. Students seemed as excited as I am, with one commenting that he would like to start straight away. I would like to agree, were there not a great deal of work to be done by then! I had a brilliant response to the Support Staff adverts that closed on Friday. I am enjoying reading high quality applications and look forward to interviews next week. I also enjoyed visiting West Lodge and Cannon Lane primary schools last week, and will visit more over the coming weeks- continuing the theme of old and new; the oldest students in primaries coming to their new school.
