We recently had a visit from Sarah at Educatus, who toured the school with our head, Dr Edmonds. We were delighted with the resulting Educatus Explorer blog post – it captures PGP perfectly. You can read the blog post at https://educatus.org.uk/educatus-explorer/parsons-green-prep.

Juventus World Cup (Youth)

The whole of Parsons Green Prep wanted to say congratulations to Rikhil, one of our very keen football players, who has been invited to take part in the Juventus World Cup (Youth) in Turin in Italy from Monday 10 to Friday 15 June 2024, as well as the Camacha Cup in Portugal.

Following his trials with Juventus, Rikhil is joining the world’s largest and most prestigious youth football tournament. Each year, players from across England are carefully selected to represent Juventus Academy England at the Juventus World Cup (Youth). This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players and one which will reflect very positively on the local community.

The tournament consists of elite players and teams from over 32 different nations, with the opening ceremony attracting over 50,000 spectators. The event provides young players with a great education, both on and off the field of play. The learning curve is steep, however, as they will develop vital life skills, sportsmanship, teamwork and self-discipline. Also, by integrating with children from different nationalities and backgrounds, this event provides a rich cultural experience as it helps build young players’ confidence, self-esteem and communication skills.

We all wish you the very best of luck Rikhil – what an amazing opportunity for you. Well done!

LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art)

The spring term was very exciting for the LAMDA cohort at PGP. Mr Max has been joined by the fantastic Miss Jordon (also of House of the Dragon fame) in delivering classes across Pre-prep and Prep, with record numbers of children signing up and discovering the unique benefits of studying voice, performance, communication, acting and poetry. Another very successful winter exam season saw almost every student receive a Distinction and, with 20 submissions booked for the spring exam dates, LAMDA at PGP is thriving.

The School Council

The School Council at PGP, which consists of a representative from Reception to Year 6, was overwhelmingly positive about their experiences of school life during their recent meeting. They unanimously expressed how much they appreciated the action taken by the school following recommendations from their classes. The children love the new play equipment, particularly the football goal, and the array of foods for lunch. The introduction of additional themed days has been very much enjoyed.

So too has the increase in sports fixtures, including the Tag Rugby Festival hosted by PGP and entries to national competitions. The inclusion of contact rugby for Year 6 and the Craven Cottage senior school transition event, which provides advice on how to keep safe and how to do CPR, have been popular additions in the preparation for senior school. Thank you to this year’s School Council members for their continued commitment to helping the school evolve. You are doing a super job!
