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 Mr Delaney.  We wish him all the best for his future career and thank him for the contribution he has made to Sir Harry’s.  We would also like to thank Mrs Glissmann, who has been teaching music to Year 7/8 for the last two years.



The Future


Next year we will welcome to Sir Harry’s:


Mr Ju-Koningswoud (Reception Teacher)


Mr Mitiwe (Year 9 Form Tutor/ Secondary Maths Science and Computing)


Mr Milanzi (Secondary Music)



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.
