Wellesley Weekly

6th September 2018

Welcome back to everyone for the start of the new school year. Particular good wishes go to the children and staff who have joined the school at the beginning of this term: Mr Parfitt will be teaching Art and Design Technology, Sister Ruth joins Sister Carol in the Surgery and Mrs Hawkins takes over in the Office as School Secretary. We wish them all a long and happy time at Wellesley.

General Knowledge

The annual school general knowledge competition took place on Thursday morning. The winners for each year group will be announced next week.

School Play

Auditions took place late last term for parts in the Senior Play, 'Aladdin'. The major roles in the cast have been allocated and just parts in the ensemble remain to be filled. Rehearsals begin this week, continuing in the evenings throughout the next two months before the performances in November.

Saturday Chapel

All parents, of both boarding and day children, are very welcome to attend the chapel services on Saturday mornings. Mr Spencer will be addressing the school this Saturday, and the service begins at 12.10 pm.

Sunday Activity

The boarders will remain in school for the annual Wellesley Heptathlon on Sunday afternoon. All the boarders will be divided into groups for a variety of challenges, with each team taking part in seven events. This is always a competitive but enjoyable occasion, and the results will be announced next week.


This week the kitchen will be serving Menu 1.
