  • Year 5/6 Enterprise Day- Metro Bank Windsor

    Published 17/11/17

    Mr Knights and Mr Pincolini (parent volunteer) took 12 year 5/6 children to Metro Bank Windsor for a business enterprise day run by Enabling Enterprise. The aim of the trip was to help children develop key skills (below) and learn about why we have banks and what it would be like to work in one.

    The children loved it and apart from the minibus flat tyre and the broken parking ticket machine, the adults loved it too. On returning to school the children told their friends that they saw where the Queen lived, that they saw gold bars worth millions of pounds and that they ate Subway sandwiches for lunch :-)

    It was a great day and the children were a credit to our school.

    Follow this link for a full write-up about the day.

  • Mrs Tresilian Retires

    Published 07/08/17

    Dear Parents/ Carers,

    It is with a sense of sadness, but with one of immense pride and achievement, that I am retiring today.  I have been given the most wonderful send-off by everyone and loved seeing some ex-Sythwood pupils and staff in the last few days.  I feel privileged to have been Head for so long and will leave with many fond memories.  I began at Sythwood in 1999 and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment; there has certainly never been a dull moment!  It has been exciting to see the school on its improvement journey including the addition of the Children’s Centre, the Games area and the beautiful new buildings to accommodate the increased number of children.  There is a very strong, talented and committed staff and an outstanding leadership team whom I have no doubt will sustain this success over the coming years.  The children have been wonderful, doing their best and finding success.  I must also give a huge thank you to all of the families who have been so supportive and encouraging (and sometimes challenging!) over this period.  Success only comes through a powerful partnership between home and school.

     

    Whilst I would have relished the challenge to take the school into its next exciting phase it seems the right time for an energetic, committed and passionate successor who ‘gets’ the school ethos to continue our exciting journey.  So Miss Wilmshurst will take over my role and Mr Knights will be Deputy.  I have complete confidence in them and in our governors to ensure that Sythwood is a very special place for children to thrive, flourish and excel.

     

    As is usual there will be other arrivals and departures. 3 of our teachers are leaving to work in other countries Miss Coleing to Vietnam, Miss Mathis to Dubai and Miss Glassington to Australia.  5 other teachers only joined us for one year and are now moving on to new ventures – Miss Francis, Mr Hermes, Mrs Cameron, Mr Elsey and Mr Jerrard.  Miss Green is moving to a school nearer to her home.  New adventures lie ahead also for Miss Payne, Mrs Cox, Mrs Osawa and Miss Champion.  Mrs Wearne, who has been here longer than me, is also retiring and we wish her much happiness.

     

    I wish all of the leavers, including our pupils who are moving on, the very best for the future and extend a warm welcome to our new arrivals.  Once again, I offer my gratitude to you.  I have had some of the best years of my life at Sythwood and I hope to keep some association with the school through the Bourne Trust.  However, in the meantime, I have no doubt that the Sythwood and the Bourne Education Trust will go from strength to strength.

     

    Thank you all once again for all your friendship and support, having the belief in me, and enabling me to end my career on such a positive note.

    Warmest regards
