Mr Gear’s Apprentice for the Day – Thursday 21st March 2024

On Thursday 21st March I had the pleasure of sharing my day with my apprentice, Miss Honor K, Year 1. The day started with Honor leading the cheers in assembly which was followed by her presenting reward stickers to 5 pupils for their musical contribution at the assembly. Honor then took a phone call from Ms Julie Robinson, who is the Chief Executive of the Independent Schools Council. Ms Robinson shared some delightful information about an afternoon tea that she had shared with the late Queen, even though there no marmalade sandwiches available. The next event of the day was to take a trip to Caterham School with Honor and her parents for morning coffee and a tour with Mr Jones, the Headmaster. Mr Jones laid out the red carpet for us and we shared morning coffee and there was an opportunity for Honor to sit in the Headmaster’s chair in Mr Jones’s study. This was followed by a tour of the school with visits to the Art, Music, Science Departments as well as the Library.

I would like to thank Honor for being an excellent apprentice and for making my day much brighter and for giving me such wonderful company.

Mr Alex Gear
