Twickenham Studios Repairs Update - 27 December 2012

As you are aware Twickenham Studios is undergoing a major refurbishment. We are planning to upgrade many of our production suites and have had building work taking place at the site. We had planned a break in the building works for the festive period but unfortunately we have had to recommence the works early, this is because the recent heavy downpours have caused us further problems with leaky roofs.

By the early 16th century and the Reformation, when Henry 8th was abolishing the monasteries, large numbers of poor were forced to roam the country looking for food and alms, becoming objects of fear and derision.

Event Reminder: Art Picnic at the Rose Theatre - 27 January 2013

The first Art Picnic of 2013, by popular request, is once again at The Rose Theatre in Kingston Upon Thames. An experienced Tutor is on hand who is happy to help, or offer advice, if needed. Last year the group were fortunate to be there while rehearsals were in progress, so apart from attractive architecture, they were able to draw figures in movement. We have heard that The Swing Dance session will again be on at the theatre that day so we can join in and sketch the dancers too! I’m sure you will have a very enjoyable day. Advance booking is essential so please let me know if you would like to go to this art picnic.

Admissions Policy for St Stephen's Primary School for 2014/15

As you are aware the Governing Body is legally required to consult on its admission arrangements. I therefore attach a copy of the proposed procedure for admission into Reception classes and for in year admissions for St Stephen’s Primary School for 2014/15. The main changes are to take into account exceptional medical or social needs and to allocate six foundation places on the basis of regular attendance at either St Stephen’s or another local Christian church. Other changes are minor and result from the 2012 Schools Admission Code.
