Dear Parents/Carers,

Goodbye and Good Luck

We all enjoyed the year 6 assembly today and thank the children for sharing some of their memories with us.


For those children who are moving on to new schools, we would like to wish them every success for the future. We hope that they will keep in touch and let us know how they are progressing.


Today, we also said goodbye to Miss Grace Huntley. We wish her all the best for her new post in China and thank her for the contribution she has made to Sir Harry’s.


Mrs Praise Gadala started her maternity leave today and we wish her all the best for the birth of her first child.

School Fees

Please remember you can start paying your fees for next term during the holidays. This will help to reduce the size of your instalments.


REMEMBER – If you introduce a new family to the school, you receive 20% discount on your fees for the following term. Please keep talking to your friends.

I would like to wish all of our children, staff, parents and board members a very pleasant break from school and I look forward to seeing you all in September.


Yours sincerely,

James Elford
