Our very own Marathon Runner!

This Sunday Miss Glenister will be taking on the challenge of running her 4th marathon! She was lucky enough to get a ballot place for the London Marathon in October and has spent the winter training for this day. She is fundraising for the National Autistic Society as she has an autistic son of her own. Having done marathons before, Miss Glenister is fully aware of how exhausting and painful it is going to be so would appreciate as much support as she can get! 
If you would like to sponsor her you can do so at:

And our very own Dressage Champion!

On Easter Saturday, Demi in Year 6 and her pony Charlie went to Bury Farm in Aylesbury, to represent Berkshire and Holy Trinity School at the NSEA (The National Schools Equestrian Association) County Dressage Championships.  Demi came first and won the National Schools Novice Championship! Amazingly, Demi was representing the only primary school in the competition.  All the entries were from secondary schools! Scores show that Demi and Charlie also won the competition by a large margin.  Well done Demi and Charlie!

After School Clubs

All after school clubs start next week.  Please make sure you book these over the weekend at the latest so that registers can be prepared and staff know where children are due to be after school.  Club information including start and end dates can always be found on our website:


Plastic Bottle Recycling

We have now recycled over 5000 bottles earning over £260 for school so far and we remain second in the Green Redeem league tables behind a much larger school.  Thank you to every one who is contributing, including those who kept all their bottles over the holiday period and some of you who are even collecting bottles from your work places which gives us a great boost!  These bottles are a fantastic commodity - clean and unadulterated by other waste they are in demand and you know they will be recycled.  Every bottle counts!  

PTA Update

Don't forget - Year 6 Bake Sale after school today!!


Funds raised last term - many thanks to all the parents who volunteered their time to ensure the Easter Egg Hunt and Disco took place! Together these events raised over £700!!!


Dates for the calendar - Summer Term:
Monday 13th May - Final PTA meeting of the Year (agenda Summer Fair and Picnic).
Saturday 29th June - PTA Summer Fair  

Class Reps will be in touch shortly with planned activities. 

Please support your class by offering half an hour of your time on the day to allow the Class Reps to enjoy the event with their families. If every family donates 30 minutes it really does make such a difference

By Popular demand Frokidz will be providing music and dancing for the children funded by the PTA!
Winkworths have once again agreed to sponsor the fair with their boards. Those who have previously agreed to have a board will be put forward for a board for the fair - please let Mr D'Costa know if this is a problem. If you haven't previously had one it would really help if you would have one - again please ping Mark D'Costa on Classlist with your details.

Auction items - we'd really appreciate any items you can donate for the silent auction again this year.


Friday 5th July - School Family Picnic (back up date Friday 12th July).

Date for the Future - Sunday 15th September - HTS Fest - Holy Trinity Church Summer Festival (was the church Party in the Park) - Small toy/gift tombola with all proceeds from that stall going to the PTA.
