Summer Term Gets Underway

It was wonderful to welcome everyone back for the summer term this week, including the Head Girl team for 2021-22.  They are Head Girl Ravleena, and Deputy Head Girls Gabriella, Georgie and Elysia.

Head Mistress Heather Hanbury explained it was “business as usual”, in what continues to be one of the most unusual years in memory thanks to the pandemic.  She said that masks and the one-way system round the school remain, as do year-group bubbles, sanitiser stations and social distancing. Staff will be encouraging everyone to get outside as much as possible to enjoy the (hopefully) warmer weather.

In the first half of the term, the U5 and U6 assessments will continue, concluding in May instead of the usual public exams. Mrs Hanbury pledged that the school would do everything it could to ensure the students get the best and fairest grades possible.

Preparation for a new school building will start in the half term break and continue over the summer holidays. Next year it will provide seven extra classrooms, two new offices and a kitchen area.

Plans are also a-foot to put up a large marquee in the grounds after half term, which LEH hopes to use for some of the final exciting events of the academic year, including the U6 graduation, the Summer Spectacular Concert, the Annual Giving Day, Sports Day and the Celebration of the Year.

Also this term, LEH’s new sister school LEH Foshan is getting ready to throw open its doors for pupils for the first time. It is the first British international school in Foshan, a city in the Guangdong province of China, and will offer day and boarding school for students from 10 to 18 years old.
