I was delighted this week to welcome families of those given offers to join us in September as our third year group. Time flies! 180 offers were made for 180 places, and the ‘last distance offered’ was 1.4 miles. Our waiting list is growing, but there will be lots of movement, and I expect more offers will be made over the coming weeks.
It is exciting to share with new families the opportunities a Pinner High School education brings. The last few weeks have seen Money Matters workshops, and the return of students from the ski trip. The arctic weather led to the cancellation of the Globe theatre trip for the whole of Year 7, which was unfortunate. The RAF were due to be our speakers in the Q?rius programme, but could not make it due to the snow!
Students are busy rehearsing for the school musical ‘Beauty and the Beast’, trying out for the table tennis team, and preparing for the Science Week House competition.
Before we add an extra year group we will be the sole occupants of our site, as Avanti House move to their new site in a few weeks. We are busy planning the spaces we can use straight away, and developing the next phase of the refurbishment programme. Students will help how to prioritise spending £4.2 million on our facilities: we're creating an extensive shopping list!
