As we start our half term break, we would like to share words of thanks from Darryl Wideman - Head, taken from our weekly newsletter: "I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to pupils and parents as well as our staff for everything that has happened since the start of term. I have been hugely impressed by the positive way the children have gone about their schooling and by the resilience they have shown, particularly but not exclusively those who have had to endure a period of self-isolation. Thank you to all our parents for your patience and support, not least because there have been so few opportunities to meet most of you face to face." Wishing you all a happy and healthy half term holiday. #halfterm #thankyou #radnorjourney
Last day of half term and Mufti Day! Wear your casual clothes to school and raise money for our school charities! @bleeding.disorders @raysofsunshinecc @ins_4life and Off the Record - Twickenham #schoolcharity #radnorjourney #muftiday
Gardening Club led by Darryl Wideman - Head, is proving very popular with our Lower school and Junior pupils this term! Our keen and enthusiastic team of young gardeners have been out and about today planting daffodil bulbs and some winter heathers to add a bit of colour to the blank canvas that is our car park garden. With 15 pupils in the group, it is good that we have so much space in which to work, and hopefully the fruits of our labours will be increasingly visible in the coming months. #watchthisspace #gardening #gardeningclub #radnorjourney #cocurricular

Year 5 enjoyed the opportunity to immerse themselves in some fabulous virtual creative writing workshops with Emma Beswetherick, author of the Wishing Star series of books. Emma has adapted the original workshop that had been scheduled in school for a series of 'virtual' live workshops...

We were delighted to welcome Mark Davies - Chair of British Rowing, who was in conversation with Mr Oliver Wheatley in front of an enthusiastic crowd of Radnor rowers as part of our Academic Enrichment Programme.
At the end of my section in the bulletin last week, I made reference to an interview with the historian and broadcaster Neil Oliver, in which he made what I thought was a very interesting point about the way that events cycle through time. He said that in his work he reads...
What a pretentious title! Let’s keep it simple and say instead that variety is the spice of life.
Now that term is up and running, with a growing sense of routine, for the time being at least, it seemed like a good time to go round to each year group and share a few thoughts with them in an assembly. In the past, which is a much easier expression of time than ‘the...
I thought a change of direction might be needed this week, steering away from further comment about the relentlessly miserable news, the end of summer and the unshakeable image of John Laurie’s Private Frazer saying, ‘We’re doomed, Captain Mainwaring, doome...
