Message from Mrs Keep

Dear Parents,

This week, a number of our potential scholars have been at Lancing College where they have been pursuing their talents in a variety of areas. Of course, the word talent is key here, but the journey to sitting a scholarship begins many years earlier, when a child’s passion is ignited long before it has been transformed into talent. 

Having been away for the first half of this week at a Woodard Schools Conference, much of my time has been spent exploring different educational perspectives and issues. I learnt that the average 4 year old girl is likely to ask somewhere close to 400 questions a day; little wonder our children in Nursery and Reception are learning at an astonishing rate. It is their curiosity as much as our teaching that propels them forward. 

So, if it is curiosity that helps us to learn, our job is surely to help all our children to stay curious. The answers may not be as important as the questions. In school, we will keep encouraging all our children to question the world around them and we look forward to the questions they ask us that we can’t answer. 

As for the Year 8 scholarship candidates, I look forward to reporting in due course on their successes. But when the process is finished and the awards have been made, I will be judging their success not only by whether or not they have been given an award, but by what they have taken away from the process itself. Being of a scholarly mind is something all our children can aspire to, and their sense of achievement should come from having inquired, explored and given themselves over to improvement by having given of their best. 

To finish on an appropriate question, I would ask all our children to consider the following: if practice makes perfect and nobody’s perfect, why practice? I look forward to hearing their thoughts next week… 

With best wishes,

Mrs Kirsty Keep
