Dear Parents and Guardians
The Spring term is well under way and pupils in both the Preparatory and Senior School continue to work hard as well as being involved in a wide range of activities outside the classroom. Sixth Form and Year 11 pupils have recently completed public and mock examinations.
I would like to thank everyone who recently completed our NFER Parent Survey Questionnaire. Your feedback is very important to the school and we are in the process of analysing the results, which will help to inform future planning.
At the start of term we welcomed our new Gap Students from Australia, Miss Sarah Lattimore and Miss Courtney Berryman. We also recently welcomed Miss Victoria Peacock, Learning Support Assistant, and Mrs Maureen Bradford, Classroom Assistant.
At Half Term we have some goodbyes to say to staff. Mrs Glenda Fletcher is retiring from her role as Teacher of Home Economics. Mrs Liz Barnes who joined us last term will now be teaching these groups. Mr Stuart Pillinger, our Economics Teacher, will also be leaving at this time and Mr Lee Turnbull, who is currently teaching Economics and Business Studies, has been appointed to teach our A Level classes at Stover.
I would like to thank Mrs Fletcher who has been a member of staff for 10 years and Mr Pillinger who has been with us for 6 years for all their hard work with our pupils during this time.
The Stover website continues to be updated on a daily basis and we hope you find it both informative and of interest. Mrs Coyle, Head of the Preparatory School, and myself will continue to post our Newsletters on the website. I hope you will also keep up to date by reading our ‘blogs’.
