School Notices

Food and Drink in Chapel

We kindly ask that you do not bring food or drink into Chapel, thank you.

Engines Off Please!

Did you know that an idling vehicle produces almost twice the emissions as a moving vehicle? Prioritise children’s health and the health of our planet over the comfort of drivers who repeatedly keep their vehicle engine running when parked. Please turn your engine off when waiting in the school car park.

Please return library books before the summer holidays

You have time to finish your book before the end of term!

Search in your classrooms, lockers, under beds and bookshelves. Post returned books into the cupboard in the main library.

Thank you for helping find our lost books, Mrs Dudley

Sally’s Swim School

Sally Crathern, swimming teacher to Pre-Prep is running her next intensive courses during the summer holidays. Dates are Monday 25th – Friday 29th July and 8th – 12th August at King Edward’s Witley. The course is open to all ability levels from non swimmers from the age of 4 to strong, technically able swimmers. Four teachers are in the water with the younger, less experienced swimmers. Lessons will be every half hour from 9.00am to 11.30am. Groups are created according to ability and parents then contacted via email with a specific lesson time.

The cost is £50 for the 5 days x 30 minute lessons. Stronger swimmers will be swimming for 45 minutes costing £75. Please see https://www.sallyswimschool.com/crash-courses for more information and a booking form.

Mobiles and Watches

Ideally children should not bring expensive items like watches and fitbits in to school or on residentials but if they do, please ensure these are named clearly. If your child needs to bring a telephone in to school this MUST be handed to Mr Shreeve on arrival at school and collected only on departure from school and should be turned off please.

The Schools Uniform Shop

Please note the shop is open by appointment; these can be made by the online booking system.

Cancellation of Fixtures

If fixtures are cancelled due to adverse weather, please be assured that we will notify you as soon as we are aware of the change.

Term Dates

Term dates can be found on the school website https://www.barrowhills.org/news-events/term-dates/

Absences on match afternoons

Please notify games staff of any absences on a match afternoon in advance when possible.

Absence Request Form

This Absence Request Form must be completed for any reason that a child is not in school, other than illness. These are also found on the Parent Portal. Thank you.


Please can we remind you that the majority of the communications are sent via the parent portal on a Tuesday. Communications will vary for each child dependent on a variety of factors e.g. class, gender, sets. The Prep team sheet can be changed at any time therefore we encourage you to check the portal on a regular basis.
