Marquee Week 2016 announced

The line up of events for Marquee Week 2016 has been announced.

Families and invited guests can look forward to a host of high profile events, including lunches, dinners, parties, concerts and the annual prize-giving events.

The climax of the exciting week will be a grand gala dinner, to take place in the marquee in the school grounds during the evening of Saturday, 2nd July. This special event is ticket-only and is open to all families, from Nursery through to Year 11. It will comprise a drinks reception, a three course dinner followed by a disco and a licensed bar.

Dinner guests will no doubt recognise the chefs, sommeliers and front of house staff as these roles will be undertaken by Year 7 to 11 pupils, adding to the intimacy and atmosphere of this special evening. On the other hand, Year 11 pupils are welcome to attend as dinner guests with their parents. Naturally, the pupils taking part in the hospitality and service roles will be fully supervised by experts from the School’s catering partner, Chartwells.

Once the meal is finished, pupils will join guests to relax and enjoy the after-dinner party. The evening will be a wonderful opportunity for all to socialise, reminisce and celebrate. Tickets are priced at £25 per person and will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Official invitations will be sent out in due course via email, but in the meantime please feel free to express any early interest in attending to Ms Archer (
