Happy Easter

27 March 2018

It's been a busy and productive term but I have to say, one of the most rewarding in recent memory. What's so good about the staff and students of USH is how they push on and keep focussed; right until the end of each term and whilst laying the foundations for the next one.

I hope you've been keeping in touch with our school developments through our newsletters and social media. Wherever you are spending the holidays, I hope you have restful time. I'll be seeing family, decorating, staying local with plans to visit to Libertys Centre* and finishing my current reading; Homo Deus (the sequel to Sapiens) . A stunning book, vast in its themes. But eminently readable.

Happy Easter.

*Raptors aren't everyone's cup of tea I know, but they're my idea of bliss. And there's few things in the natural world more beguiling than an owl. I wish the same could be said for decorating.
