At Mowden Hall, over 90% of the pupils learn at least one musical instrument in the Prep School, and now is the right time for our new Year 4 pupils to try out some of the instruments they might like to take up. Mr Fowlds and Miss Francomb introduced them to some popular woodwind instruments this week.

The Boarders celebrated Autumn with an outdoor party that any festival goer would have been proud to attend. Correctly attired in traditional festival-going kit, they had great fun around the fire and the Festival Tent eating, singing and dancing the evening away, late into the night, watching the sun go down and then reappear in the early hours!

On Sunday, there was a chance to present clever ideas in a Dragon’s Den pitch. Each group was hoping for a piece of a very wealthy team of Dragons’ fortunes, as an investment!

Hot chocolate at “The Duke” was also on offer this weekend!

A large and enthusiastic group of children from years 3, 4 and 5 left for Kielder Water and Forest on Friday to try out a range of exciting outdoor activities. They stayed over two nights in the Outdoor Centre at Hawkhirst and their feet barely touched the ground (-quite literally!) all the time they were there. They loved the activities on the water and up in the trees and returned full of stories about their amazing experiences.

The 24 pupils (and instructor) who took the LAMDA drama and speaking graded awards in the Summer, were rewarded with 100% passes, many of which were passes with merit or distinction. They were congratulated by the Headmaster in assembly, who also presented them with their certificates. A new group has already signed up either to try the course for the first time or to progress to the next level with Mr Hampton this term.

Mowden children came into school with big smiles in the sunshine, thrilled to see friends and pleased with the bright new rooms provided around the school. Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep school arrived, some in the new version of the summer uniform. The grounds look a picture and everyone was eager to get outside at break and for games sessions. The new arrivals amongst the children (and staff!) are all smiles after their first full day and we all feel ready for the busy term ahead of us.

The Year 8 Leavers enjoyed a beautiful evening for their last night at the school, with everyone arriving in their best dinner suits and dresses. After cocktails at the front of school, the meal was served by a lovely team from Pauline’s kitchen staff. All enjoyed a delicious three course dinner, during which speeches were made and the much treasured year-books were distributed by Mr Hadfield. The leavers all rocked the night away at the disco before eventually collapsing into their Mowden beds for the last time!

The Year 8 leavers had fantastic weather for their five day stay at Loch Ken, before returning to Mowden for the end of term formalities.  Staying at the Galloway Activity Centre on the shores of Loch Ken, they were able to try their hand at archery, climbing and abseiling; there was the amazing high swing and the immense water slide to enjoy on land, while out in the loch, they could sail, kayak and play on the water park floats. They took part in Laser Tag activities in the woods and had great fun throughout their stay.

After receiving the great news of their successful Common Entrance results, the Year 8 children packed their ruck-sacks and headed for the Lake District, where they enjoyed the early days of the current dry spell of weather. The first goal was to take part in the Great North Swim in Lake Windermere, from where they headed for their accommodation for the rest of the week. The walks they went on were spectacular, with the fells and lakes looking their best in the bright sunshine. They enjoyed abseiling and rock climbing as an extra experience during their trip.

We set off on Friday and arrived at the Percys’ land, where we set up our tents. The weather was very hot but we managed to get all the tents up. After that we played some football and we had supper. In the morning, we had a cooked breakfast, followed by some free time. We went on a walk of about 8 km and had a picnic lunch at the top of the highest hill. We came down quite quickly. After supper, Sam and his family came and they gave us brownies. We went to bed at about 9.00pm. On the last day we took down our tents, packed up and left to go back to school.
