Mrs Clare Lynas, Headmistress of Rupert House, today announced the school’s latest excellent results.
She said: “We are extremely proud to announce that, with the exception of one or two late assessments, every one of the girls in Year 6 has been successful in securing a place at their chosen senior school, including The Abbey School (Reading), Cranford House (Moulsford), Headington (Oxford), Queen Anne’s (Caversham), Heathfield (Ascot) and St Helen and St Katharine (Abingdon).
“They have also achieved many excellent awards,” she continued. “Freya Bogdanovic won an all-rounder scholarship to St Helen and St Katharine, while Queen Anne’s school awarded academic scholarships to Freya Bogdanovich, Freya Bradbury, Annie King and Holly King. Freya Bradbury also gained a music scholarship, Jasmine Booth a sports exhibition and Saskia Kishon drama and music exhibitions, again at Queen Anne’s. Isobel Clarke was highly commended for her maths by The Abbey. These awards are a powerful recognition of the hard work of both the girls and our staff and I am very proud of all those involved.”
Mrs Lynas added that Rupert House was holding an open morning on Saturday, March 22 from 10am to 12 noon.
“We look forward to welcoming you through our famous blue front door where you will immediately experience the warmth, peace and friendliness that defines Rupert House.
“Come and see our thriving school in action. Every child is an individual and, with small classes, we are able to give quality time to support, enrich and extend every individual’s achievements. We will be happy to show you around and you will be able to see at first hand that pupils at Rupert House School are given a wonderful start in life.”
Rupert House Preparatory School is a happy, thriving day school set in the heart of Henley, having served the town and the local community for more than 70 years. It is currently taking registrations for the academic year 2015-2016. As well as the enviably strong academic record highlighted by its recent results, the school has a wide range of extra-curricular activities before, during and after school to broaden their horizons.
Some of the activities include: mandarin, football, hockey, jazz dance, martial arts, film club, Latin and tennis. Peripatetic teachers offer tuition in piano, cello, violin, viola, harp, saxophone and flute and there is a thriving drama department that uses Henley’s home of live theatre, the Kenton, for its productions.
