Welcome from the Headmaster
Well, the boys and girls returned on Wednesday 8 January, and instead of the normal post-Christmas chatter about presents and relatives, the talk was all about fallen trees and power lines, who had and hadn’t had electricity, water (none or too much). In spite of it all spirits were high and there was lots of laughter, because there always is a lot of laughter at Amesbury.
Before we know it though, the Lent term will speed along, Spring will be with us and, just like the proverbial cuckoo, that tells us it must be time for our week long Arts Festival.
This website ranges widely from Open Days (our next one being Thursday 6 February), Scholarship Day (Tuesday 11 February), how to apply for a place, to the curriculum and activities, to our history and much else. I hope you find it interesting and helpful.
In addition to which you are, of course, more than welcome to visit us, and to meet some of the characters who help to make the school what it is. I hope you do.
Happy New Year 2014
Headmaster Nigel Taylor
