Today we celebrate National Tell a Story Day! People all around the world are joining in this wonderful celebration of the art of storytelling. The aim of the day is to get participants of all ages telling, sharing and listening to each others stories. This could be by reading one of your favourite books or creating your own story from your imagination. This morning in the library, the Year 4 children were getting stuck into their reading books, enjoying some quiet time to read in their reading period. The children recommened their favourite books to their friends and explored the shelves of wonderful literature and amazing authors. At Bevendean, the Year 1 children were enjoying some time in their book corner, listening to each others stories, and getting lost in the magical world of storytelling. Today has been an amazing celebration and we are reminded of something J.K Rowling once wrote, No story lives unless someone wants to listen.

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.
