Patterson House Update

Published 19 December

This term we awarded our first Charity Champions trophy. The award went to Harvey (9P2) for his tireless efforts raising money for Guide Dogs. Last month, Harvey had a stall at a Christmas fair selling festive goodies he had made and decorated. The dog biscuit baubles he made sold out in 40 minutes. Harvey has raised over £180 this year already. Well done Harvey!

As the end of term rushes towards us, Patterson House Office has been decorated to help celebrate the season – this year sees the Office dressed up at Narnia, complete with a wardrobe to enter into the winter wonderland.

Our very own Aslan, Mr Brooker, is leaving at the end of this term and has the following message

Dear Patterson community,

You may know that I am leaving as Head of Patterson House at the end of this month and moving to another school. It was a very hard decision to make as I have thoroughly enjoyed being Head of such an amazing House. I would like to thank you all for your support during my time in Patterson and wanted to wish you all the very best for the future. Patterson students and staff are absolutely amazing and I will miss you all terribly. My replacement will be taking over a hardworking and dedicated group of adults, a focused and successful group of students and a supportive and understanding group of parents. I would like to say a special thank you to all of you that have donated money, time or baking skills to support the House charity, as one of the things I am most proud of is the support we have been able to give to Guide Dogs. We have sponsored 4 dogs in my time as Head of House and we are very close to another, so please keep up the amazing work as it really does change someone’s life. All the very best and remember keep ‘Going for Gold’.
