Reading Competition

Thank you so much to all the participants in the Prep School reading competition on Monday.  The standard of entry was extremely high and it was thoroughly enjoyable to listen to all the pupils read their selected pieces.  We were thrilled that David Wake-Walker (Old Orwellian) was able to join us as adjudicator of the senior competition.
