It is very important to us all that that boys in the Prep are developing a growing awareness of the hugely complex and fascinating world around them. Considering our assembly theme of ‘adversity’, in her presentation on Thursday, Mrs Grove explained how high-profile footballer Marcus Rashford MBE has not forgotten the adverse surroundings he was brought up in, (far from it in fact), and how that has inspired him to do as much as he can to support vulnerable children from disadvantaged backgrounds today.


As we go forward this year, we hope the boys in Years 3 – 5 might well be inspired by Marcus Rashford too, as they consider how they could raise funds or seek to support those less fortunate than themselves in other ways through the framework of our L.I.O.N. Award.
