Senior House Swimming Gala

We look forward to seeing as many parents as possible at our annual Swimming Gala at CHEAM LEISURE CENTRE on Monday afternoon, 3rd March.  It is always a really enjoyable and often noisy occasion with the girls competing with each other for the honour of their House.  It is also very pleasing to see how much improvement has been made over the past year.  This is a prompt start at 12.30pm and girls must be collected from Cheam Leisure Centre at 3.15pm.  There are no After School Clubs or Homework Club for Senior House girls on this afternoon.


Junior House Parents’ Evening

This is being held on Monday 3rd March between 4.00pm – 6.00pm.  Teachers will be holding their appointments in the relevant classrooms.  Please wait in Junior House reception for your allotted time.


IAPS Netball

Good luck also to our Form VI Netball squad who will be taking part in the annual IAPS Netball Tournament at Roedean School, Brighton on Thursday.


World Book Day

We are looking forward to a variety of book characters coming to life on Thursday when we will be celebrating World Book Day.  We hope you are well prepared to enjoy a really fun day including a ‘Parade of Characters’ in the afternoon.  Please remember there is a donation of £1 for the privilege of a non-uniform day and this involves everyone!


My Marsden March

This is now only three weeks away!  Thank you to those who have visited our site and pledged sponsorship.  It is lovely to see your messages of support and watch our total rise.  If you have not already done so, then please use this link and help us reach our total.  Remember we would love as many of you as possible to join us on Friday 21st March.


Baker’s On-Board Please!

With this year’s My Marsden March on Friday 21st March being a special one in memory of Mrs Lunn I am sure we are all keen to make it as memorable for the girls as possible. POSH, as usual, would like to organise a cake to reward each child and we will therefore be requiring 160 individual cakes. If you would be prepared to join our team of 'Marsden Bakers' please e-mail me with the quantity and type (ie cupcakes, brownies etc) you will be baking. Cakes mustn't contain nuts & will need to be brought into school either on the day, or the day before. Thank you - in anticipation of being flooded with offers!

 Parents’ Calendar Amendment

Please note a change for Tuesday 11th March.  The U10 & U11 A team netball practices due to take place after school have been postponed.  Instead this date will be a practice for the Gym Squad for Mrs Lunn’s Memorial Concert.


Forms V & VI Bude

Please can we ask that all medication starts to come in to Mrs Mathews, including travel sickness tablets, if you have indicated that your daughter needs them.  The deadline for receiving medicines is Wednesday 12th March.


Athletes Day

If you haven’t already done so, please ensure your daughter’s sponsorship form and money are brought into school on Monday morning.


Chess Club Summer Term

If your daughter will be attending Chess Club in the summer term, please note that an extra date has been added, 27th June.  This was unfortunately omitted from the Chess Club letter.


Sainsbury’s Vouchers

Thank you for starting to bring in your Sainsbury’s vouchers.  This is an ongoing collection and the deposit box is in Junior House, under the signing in book.  Otherwise give your vouchers to your Form Teacher to put in the Register.


Nestle Box Tops

Please remember to keep sending in the Box Tops for Books tokens found on Nestle cereal boxes.  Unfortunately Nestle have announced this will be the last year that they will be running this scheme.  The school has benefited from dozens of free books over the years and it would be great if we had a large number of tokens for the final year.  Please send in these tokens by 15th March.

Sports Report


On 12th February some of the girls from each class in Senior House took part in the cross country competition against Bramley and Walton on the Hill.  Form IV started off really well with Georgia Allen coming first.  Then it was the turn of Form V but unfortunately none of them came in the top three places.  Lucy Towner from Form IV ran for the year 5’s and very nearly made third place.  She did really well.  Then it was Form VI, although running well, we were out of the places but Tess came 5th which was fabulous.  Lastly Form III had their chance and also did a fantastic job but without top three placings.  The final results were 1st Bramley, 2nd Walton on the Hill and we came in 3rd.  Well done everyone, it was really bad weather and hopefully next time we’ll do much better.

On Thursday 13th February, the U11 A team played against Sutton High School.  We lost the toss and they chose to start with the ball first.  We started off well and did a lot of tackling but none of us had the chance to shoot.  Then Sutton High got hold of the ball and managed to shoot.  It went over the cone and the umpire accepted it as a goal.  Roxanne, our goal-keeper, couldn’t really see the ball because she was dressed up in the proper kit which was really chunky, so she wasn’t able to save as many goals as usual.  At half time the score was 2-0 to Sutton High.


In the second half we did a lot more attacking but no shots at goal were on target.  Even with better defending from Ella and Roxanne, Sutton High managed three more goals.  The final score was 5-0.  Well played everyone, it doesn’t matter that we lost because we tried our best.
