  • 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

  • History Week October 16

    Published 07/11/16

    Our History Week got off to a flying start with Saxons, Romans, Vikings, ending in a WWII street party celebrating VE day for Year 6 - the children enjoyed dancing; eating 1940s party food and now have a greater understanding of the events during World War II. On the Tuesday, Yr 6 children were ‘evacuees’ for the day, role playing experiences such as air raids, rationing and childhood life during wartime.

    Year 3 enjoyed going back in time to the Stone Age at Butser Farm. They learned how to wattle, make copper jewellery and create clay pots. Behaviour was excellent and they loved showing all the facts they have learned during the IPC topic Scavengers to Settlers.
