This week Mrs Larkin hosted the wonderful annual Swimming Galas. The children swam superbly in their chosen stroke and demonstrated their amazing progress in swimming. The children cheered for their houses and encouraged each other throughout the heats, competing to swim in the finals. After their finals, the raft relay began, in their houses the children worked in pairs to swim the raft from one end of the pool to the other before the next pair took over. At the end, the head of each year presented the children with their medals and ribbons as they all waited to find out the winning house! The children worked hard to beat the records set in previous years, some of these records going back to the 1990s! Well done to all of the children who competed in their galas, we are very excited to see the Year 6 and 8 pupils in their galas in a few weeks time!

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.
