This week Year 4 and Year 5 children enjoyed their weekly gymnastics conditioning training with Mrs Hitchcock. At the beginning, they took part in an intense warm up, ensuring all of the joints are mobilised, the body is warm and their muscles are awake! This term Mrs Hitchcock is focusing on core stability, an important aspect of gymnastics, this stability gives gymnasts the ability to perform movements with strength and accuracy. After their warm up and strengthening exercises, the children worked on their rolls, bends and inversions. Inversions are handstands and headstands, movements that rely heavily on balance. The children performed some amazing handstands and Mrs Hitchcock was very impressed with their progress. The Lower and Upper School are also enjoying their weekly gymnastic activities and working on the condition and precision of their movements.

About Danes Hill
Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
- School Life
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
