Girls’ Sports Tour
I am currently looking into the possibility of running a girls’ sports tour during October 2017, to include hockey, netball and tennis. The tour will be abroad and I am looking into a number of possible destinations, taking into consideration the quality of the sport, the cultural value and ultimately the cost of the trip. This notice is just to alert you to this possibility and if the tour does go ahead, it will need a prompt response from both parents and students in order to get to ball rolling.

Private Cricket Tuition
Continuing on from the winter programme this term, students are able to access winter cricket coaching through Chris Ellison in the Spring Term, beginning after the mock exams on Thursday 26 January.
These small group sessions are planned to give our cricketers a real boost before next season. There will be nine one-hour sessions on a Thursday evening (Lower School 5.00pm - 6.00pm, Juniors 6.00pm - 7.00pm and Seniors 7.00pm - 8.00pm). The cost is £72.00 and with your permission I will add this to the College bill.
If you wish for your son/daughter to have private cricket tuition please email your consent by Monday 23 January.
Mr Jonnie Howorth
Master i/c Cricket
Everyone at Shiplake College wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
