A Message from the Head

As the school year is coming to an end Mr Muller reflects back on the past school year and shares his news.

Perhaps this is the first time we have all felt that we are truly back after COVID and that things have returned to normal. It has been brilliant to see again, in person, events and performances.  You won’t be surprised to learn that over the year SWPS has organised an amazing range of activities and events.

Our superb production of Annie in the Spring Term reminded us not only of the importance of live theatre, but how drama itself is a huge part of the lifeblood of the school. Trips to the theatre have similarly been re-established together with the always popular Junior Drama competition.

It is also thrilling to see music back to its usual combination of quality and quantity.  One could realise only too well the impact on all our lives a lack of live performance has had – made all the more real when enjoying the beautiful work of the chamber choir, the evenings of chamber concert, spring concert, the christmas concerts as well as numerous other lunch-time and after school performances.  

Societies and clubs too are now more numerous than ever at SWPS, but special mention must go to a particular favourite of mine, started by Dr Masri in which Year 7 students are building and programming robots to conduct experiments and, even to dissect an eye!  Watch this space for further developments.

Finally, I would like to remind you, that you all have an invitation to come and see the school, meet old friends and former teachers as well as, if you can, support the school in any way you can.  We would love to see you.

Chris C Muller
