Matilda JR., a gleefully
witty ode to the the anarchy
of childhood and the power of

  This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the
children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the
       “revolting children” who are out to teach the
    grown-ups a lesson. Matilda has astonishing wit,
 intelligence... and special powers! She’s unloved by her
   cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the
                highly loveable Miss Honey.

  Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing,
   however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss
 Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up
  new punishments for those who don’t abide by her
rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal
amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
 Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy
               songs, Matilda JR. is a joy.

     Children and adults alike will be thrilled and
 delighted by the story of the special little girl with an
              extraordinary imagination.

                welcome to book into this in the Prep Hall at 14:00 but remember
                                 ONLY two tickets per family please.


  Then on Tuesday 14 December we invite all Prep children from Pre-School to Year 6 to come to
   school dressed in Christmas jumpers (instead of school
jumpers). They will celebrate with a marvellous Christmas dinner including the traditional singing
             in of the pudding! This is being done to raise funds for Save the Children.

On Tuesday 14 December the senior pupils (Year 7-13) will be singing their way through the day as
 the annual House singing competition takes to the stage in the Memorial Hall. (Normal uniform)


  It is the turn of the senior pupils (Year 7-13) to take to school in their Christmas jumpers on
Wednesday 15 December. Raising money for Save the Children they will be treated to a wonderful
                                         Christmas Dinner.

 In the afternoon of the same day we have one of the Christmas highlights as “The Christmas
Extravaganza” kicks off in the Prep. All Prep children who will have come to school dressed as
 something beginning with the letter J will be entertained by the pupils in Year 12 and 13 who will
                           tell the traditional nativity story in the forest.

 The pupils will also meet the FORPS elves , attend a mini Christmas market led by business
studies pupils in Years 10 and 11 and meet Father Christmas himself! This cross school initiative is
                               done to raise funds for local charities.

Parents are invited in once more on Thursday 16 December to accompany pupils in Years 5-13 and
staff to the traditional Carol Service in aid of the RNLI. This takes place in St Johns Church at 19:00
                                   and tickets must be booked online.

    And the last day of term is Friday 17 December – a wonderful way for pupils and staff from
   Pre-school all the way through to Year 13 to celebrate is a final Christmas Chapel – a celebration
   service of Christmas led by our school chaplain and featuring a lion, a witch and a wardrobe!
