On Friday 15th September we ‘kept calm and carried on’ at Lady Margaret School! I was incredibly proud of my colleagues and of our students, all of whom reacted with good sense, good humour and with great kindness: everyone looked after each other throughout the day.

We had great support from parents and from local clergy, particularly Rev. Tim Stilwell from St. Dionis, and we had clear and helpful advice from the police. And thanks to Kevin Sharkey, Store Manager at Little Waitrose Parsons Green, who provided us with emergency extra food which was much appreciated by all and made a big difference to the day!

It was a day which showed the great strength of our school community, and we are incredibly thankful that all were safe and well.

We now turn to a new week and our Centenary celebrations coming up at the end of this month.
