Letter from the Headmaster

It was a great pleasure to see so many of you on Monday for the Day of Knowledge: I hope you enjoyed the occasion as much as I did.

The term seems to have started very well and it is pleasing to see so many happy faces when the children arrive at school in the morning.

We are still experiencing quite major problems with our email system and I’m really sorry that some parents didn’t receive the information sent before the start of term. The problem also applies to our incoming emails and so if you have sent emails to school and haven’t received a reply could I ask that you please call +7(7172) 55 98 55 (ext. 100, 110, 124). We’re working hard to find a solution and we will let you know when things are back to normal.

I hope you all enjoy the Constitution Day holiday and have a lovely weekend.

Very best wishes,

Mark Smith
