Simon Clarke Appointed New Head Master (9.12.13)Posted: 09th December 2013
Since the foundation of Spratton Hall there have, until this week, been just four Head Mas-ters - our Founder K.C. Hunter, Piers Bickley, Dr Robin Barlow and Stephen Player. Following Mr Player's retirement, Simon Clarke has been Interim Head Master and was one of the can-didates in our final interviews this week.
The Governors ran a very thorough and competitive recruitment process culminating in a unanimous vote to appoint Simon as Head Master with effect from 1st January 2014. He has our total confidence and support to continue the development of the School into the future.
Years 5-8 Shakespeare Workshop (29.11.13)Posted: 04th December 2013
The William Shakespeare experience was very enjoyable as it is every year. It was interactive and even the people who didn’t have a main role still took park in the sound and general atmosphere. Our favourite actor, who came back again this year, played a comic character which made everyone laugh.

Year 7 Head Master's London Visit (12.11.13)Posted: 15th November 2013
We made our way to the Science Museum and my group went into the mini cinema to learn about the Apollo missions. It was really good fun, especially at the end when, to our surprise, we got soaked as the capsule fell into the sea! We saw a space shuttle model and then we went to the games room where you could drive a car around a track, except if you turned right, it would go left and vice versa. This was very confusing! On the top floor there was a big circular table where you had to run away from a satellite because it was in the future and satellites could track children. With a little disc you had to run around the table without getting caught. The morning was great fun and was finished off by a yummy pizza in Trafalgar Square.
