Well done to Year 8 pupils Charlie and Jack, whose football team – the U13 Perry Street Youth Football Club – have become double champions this season by winning the Yeovil & District Division 1 League (the top division for their age group in the area) and the Division 1 Cup. Charlie plays Centre Back and Jack plays Centre Forward. It’s a remarkable achievement as it’s the first time a Perry Street Youth team has won the league since it started in 1903! Well done to you both, and to everyone in the team.
Year 7 have been writing some excellent reviews of their recent French trip using the past tense. Madame Brooks has also received some lovely comments from the places they visited during the trip, saying how impressed they were with our pupils’ commitment to speak French. Bon travail Year 7! Nous sommes fiers de vous.
Great to see this pic of Old Perrott Hillians Charlie and Ollie at the end of season academy festival at Harrow School. We always love hearing news of our OPHs, please send yours through to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well done to our U11 boys who reached the semi-finals at the Malvern College Cricket Eights today. A hugely enjoyable day with some great opposition – well done to everyone who played and thanks to Malvern for hosting!
Many thanks to our Head of Art, Mrs Palmer, for organising this collage of the Perrott Hill Manor House – produced by the children in under two hours during our recent Open Morning. It is an incredible piece of work!
Thanks to all our families and friends for a wonderful Summer Drinks Party on Friday, albeit inside due to the rain! The Grundy Hall was abuzz with positivity and it was great to welcome our new Headmaster for September, Alex McCullough, and his wife, Helen, into the Perrott family. We are very much looking forward to September!
A great afternoon of athletics last week at the Clayesmore School Athletics Meet, with lots of personal successes among our pupils. Many thanks to all at Clayesmore for a wonderful day.
We are so proud of our Year 4s for their incredible performance of Roald Dahl’s The Twits earlier this month. Says our Head of Drama, Mrs Shaun: “I am so pleased with the Year 4s and their dedicated approach to this play. Each and every child rose to the challenge. Well done to you all.”
What a line up! The Perrott Hill Plodders beat The All Stars in a thriller of a match at the North Perrott Cricket Club last week by just three runs – with the team including OPHs, past and present parents, staff and assorted hangers on. A lasagne supper in the pavilion rounded off a very enjoyable evening – our thanks to all who came to join in the fun.
The Year 7 French trip was a success, with an array of informative trips including one to the Musée de la Grande Guerre in Meaux where pupils learnt all about the First World War. They met their penfriends earlier on in the week and had great fun getting to know them and practising their French.
