Christmas countdown!

Posted on December 15, 2017


We are feeling very Christmassy at the Maynard this week as we head into the holidays. We welcomed back our 2017 leavers at the Prize Giving on Tuesday night in the Belmont Chapel – it was lovely to see them and be able to reward all their many successes amongst family, friends, staff and their peers. Many of those who came that evening have commented on what a particularly brilliant evening it was from the sheer talent of our exceptional musicians, the humour of the Head Girl team and the incredibly inspiring talk from the guest speaker, Kate Grey, broadcaster and Paralympian swimmer. It really was a dazzling success and a befitting way to commemorate the many achievements of all those who took A-levels and GCSEs this summer.

We had a very jolly Christmas lunch on Wednesday, with Andrew, Mark and all the kitchen staff  helped by Miss Dunn and other members of staff who served the girls!

Our Upper 4s have made some beautiful Christmas cakes in their Food and Nutrition classes, with an exhibition of work taking place on Wednesday afternoon, while the Junior School and Pre-Prep pupils enjoyed a wonderful Christingle Service on Thursday morning.

The Carol Service at St. Matthew’s Church was yet another stunning affair with some fantastic choral and vocal pieces to plant us firmly in the Christmas spirit. The staff choir also gave their first public performance, which seemed to go down rather well! The last day of term has seen our hilarious Sixth Form Entertainment, and a wonderful array of Christmas Jumpers!

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2018!
