Message From The Headteacher
It has been an excellent term and I have been really impressed with how all the students have been focused on achieving high standards in everything we do. At La Retraite, we believe that we can be the best and this determined attitude has been very much evidenced by the Sports teams, who have had a very successful season to date and the large number of students taking part in extra-curricular clubs, such as Mandarin, Latin, Drama, Gymnastics and Dance to name but a few.
The successful La Retraite Scholarship programme has now been extended to the lower school. The purpose of this programme is to provide opportunities to really challenge the thinking of the most able and the most determined students who are aiming for the top Universities. The majority of places on this programme are offered to students based upon their achievements during the previous year. Some places are available for students who, perhaps didn’t do as well previously, but feel that they can rise to the challenge and we were pleased to offer such places to three Year 7 students.
