Our Book Circle will be meeting on Tuesday 27 June from 7 - 8pm. Since we last met, we have been reading books under the theme of London from Dickens to the A-Z, from 'White Fang' by Jack London to Amis’ 'London Fields'. We are a very informal gathering and there is no expectation of having read anything in particular. The group is very much about sharing great reads and is open to all parents and staff. Please do join us!
Pre-season Rugby and Hockey Camps
Don't forget to sign up for our Pre-season Rugby and Hockey Camps! We will be running 3-day camps from 29 - 31 August for children entering Transition to Form VI in September 2017. Please book before the end of term to secure a place.

The 3rd Bicester Triathlon is being held on Sunday 16 July. Ashfold is not entering a team and no staff will be attending but this is another opportunity for our triathletes to compete if they wish. Ryan Steward, Ashfold Triathlon Team
This week's sports results
Team of the week: The U9A rounders team put in to practice all that they have learnt this season and were really successful in their final match v The Grove
Match of the week: Our 1st XI cricketers performed so well by chasing down a huge total to win their match on the hottest day of the year.
Silver Coin Trail and Cake Sale
A reminder that we are holding a Silver Coin Trail for our nominated charity, Pace, on Monday. If your child would like to take part, please could they bring into school as many silver coins as they are able to collect.
A team of Sixth Formers will also be holding a charity cake sale for Pace and would be very grateful if your child could bring some additional change (50ps/£1 coins) so that they can enjoy a piece of cake as well!
Speech Day Creche
As usual we will have a creche in the Pre-Prep Building on Speech Day for Ashfold Pre-Prep children with older siblings. The creche will run from 10.15am to midday. If you would like your child to join the creche, please book a place in Reception.
Staff Leavers Collection
