The wide range of extra-curricular activities we offer at Perrott Hill was celebrated during our annual Parents’ Open Morning on Saturday, with activities such as fencing, karate, gymnastics, golf, swimming, tennis, badminton, Forest School and Tinker Lab, amongst others, on display. What a wonderful morning it was – and all topped off with the spectacular re-enactment of the Battle of Bosworth by our Prep pupils.

Now we know where the children get their fighting spirit! What an unbeatable atmosphere during the Parents’ Events at this year’s Sports Day – with an egg and spoon (tennis racket and ball) race and a mammoth Tug of War. We are so proud to be part of such a special community here at Perrott Hill; we can’t wait for next year already!
This years’ Sports Day was our best yet, with an impressive 17 records being broken! Many thanks to our Director of Sport, Mr Sheldon, and his team for running such a brilliant event – and to our Head Groundsman, Mr Bartlett, for getting the grounds in such fine shape. Head over to our facebook page (@PerrottHillSchool) for more pics of the day.
What an afternoon for our annual Grandparents’ Tea Party! The sun was shining and spirits were high as children from Nursery all the way through to Year 8 gave their grandparents a tour of their much-loved school on Friday – followed by Afternoon Tea and a Music Concert on the Front Terrace.
Well done to our Year 8 pupils who have all passed their Common Entrance examinations to their chosen senior schools. Special mention must go to Catherine, who got 8 A*s and 1 A and is off to King’s College, Taunton on a triple scholarship – and Nikolai who got 6 A*s, 3 As and 2 Bs and is off to Harrow School with an art scholarship. What a year group you are! Well done to you all.
As part of our Year 8 Leavers’ Programme, our senior pupils paid a visit to the Baboo Gelato HQ in Bridport this morning. They were given a tour, got to taste a number of different ice creams (including beetroot sorbet – pretty cool!) and learnt about the passion behind the business. Thanks to Annie, Sam and all their excellent and dedicated staff for making the morning so enjoyable (and tasty!).
Years 1 and 2 enjoyed a brilliant trip to Lyme Regis last week, where they consolidated their learning on seaside holidays (Year 1) and Mary Anning and fossils (Year 2). Many thanks to Ms Williams, Ms Bresland, Miss Fussell, Mrs Schmör and Miss Huffington for accompanying the trip; Ms Bresland reports that all the staff were super proud of the children, with members of the public commenting on their excellent behaviour throughout the day. Proud to be Perrott!
Many thanks to Leweston for a brilliant Year 3 and 4 Athletics Festival yesterday. All the children took part in the 600m, 75m, Speed Bounce, Throw and Standing Long Jump with many individual successes to shout about.

Children in Years 5 to 8 enjoyed a brilliant Summer Disco on Friday, courtesy of the wonderful Friends of Perrott Hill. Our thanks to all those who helped, including our resident DJ, Mr Bunday. More, more, more!
As part of the Year 8 Leavers’ Programme, our senior pupils took part in the Great Perrott Hill Bake Off on Saturday. Judging by the noise in the Dining Hall, they had a great time! Well done to the winning team, made up of Alex, Jack, Ned, Ed, Charlie S and Matias – and thank you to our Head Chef, Mr Bickham, for choosing the winners. No mean feat!
