We say goodbye this term to Miss Jade. Miss Jade has been involved with Vestry for over 20 years, starting as a pupil when she was 5, then completing her professional training and teaching at Vestry. Miss Jade is now moving on to complete her teacher training in primary education. We wish her the best of luck in her new career and thank her for her hard work and commitment to the school.

Term ends on Friday 20th July. The Autumn term starts on Friday 7th September. If you are not continuing with lessons next term, please let me know by 14th July to avoid half a term’s fees being charged. If you have changed any of your contact information, including your email address, please inform the school. Invoices for the Autumn term will be sent out by email at the end of term, please check your email account. To receive the discounted rate please pay fees in the first week of term.

Finally, I hope that everyone has an enjoyable summer holiday break and look forwarding to seeing you all again in September.
