Welcome back to a new term and a new year at Dean Close Prep School, this is the first of many blogs we will be writing as Head Boy and Head Girl over the academic year. We’ve started the term with some exhilarating sport fixtures and a very exciting poetry competition. Last week the Year 7s enjoyed an excellent Well-being Day having lots of fun doing activities such as going down to the brook and getting very muddy, building tents and making hot chocolate on a Trangia Stove; from what we’ve heard they had a great time, now both of us really want to have a go!

The annual poetry competition is underway, thank you to everyone for taking part in a very tense and wonderful competition. We can’t wait for Thursday afternoon when the finals take place, good luck to everyone taking part.

We are all looking forward to the Life Bus arriving at school this week, especially the younger children who will be experiencing this opportunity for the first time. We hope you all have a great term and settle into school life well.
