This is a fantastic time of the year at Mountbatten – the sun is out and we can all reap the benefits of our extensive green space. There is plenty of space for playing football or other games and others just find space to be with friends.
As we approach the end of the academic year we start to get a strong sense of the natural renewal of our school population. With our Year 11 finishing their exams a couple of weeks ago we are all now looking forward to celebrating their successes by coming together at the annual Leavers' Prom, a wonderful event which this year is at St. Mary’s Stadium and is when we get to see the extensive dress, suit and transport plans come to fruition in a wonderful evening.
As we say our final farewells to Year 11 we also start to say hello to those joining us at the other end of the school from primary school. We have just had the magnificent Open Evening where we welcome mainly current Year 5 students and their parents to come and see us in action, and this coming week will see us being joined by the Year 6 students who are getting ready to become Mountbatten students in September. We look forward to welcoming them to our school.
What ever your plans over the summer season I hope you can enjoy spending at least some time with the people you love doing the things you enjoy.

Over the last few weeks a number of students have arrived to PE lessons and changed into cycling shorts for their PE lesson. We understand the weather has been incredibly hot but we must remind all parents/carers that cycling shorts are not permitted to be worn for PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs or fixtures. If your child arrives to PE with cycling shorts they will be asked to change into the school approved kit.
Summer Concert and Founder's Day
Our school musicians have had a very busy week, with an incredible concert in Romsey Abbey on Wednesday evening followed by our Founder's Day Service on Thursday.
Both of these events were recorded and can be found here.

On Tuesday, a cohort of Mountbatten School students attended the Peter Symonds taster day to find out more about college life and try a variety of taster lessons. Having the college students on site ensured the campus was full of life and buzzing with energy. The free lunch was very well received and students enjoyed being independent during the day.

But she also knows that the biggest stars in the universe are the brightest.
