The new school ponds are now taking great shape ready for being used next year.  The pupils were involved in the project which has seen the water changed, small trees cleared and the whole area landscaped with grass seed planted. 

There are lots of small fish in the pond and other wildlife, which will provide a valuable new study area for our pupils.  A big thank you to Mr Pusey and all of the pupils involved in this project.

World Book Day is the biggest celebration of its kind. The aim of it is to celebrate authors, books, illustrators and - of course - reading! To help young people to do that, book tokens are given out at schools.

Muntham House School celebrated World Book Day, by the pupils coming in dressed as their favourite book character. All pupils were provided with a £2 voucher to purchase a book. Our Primary classes really enjoyed dressing up and fully enjoyed the day.

It has been great to see our pupils back enjoying school and making the most of the opportunities available to them. The staff team have continued to work hard to reconnect with the pupils and re-engage them with their learning in the classroom,  helping them settle back into the routines and rules of school once again.  Pupils and staff have appreciated being back at school and seeing their friends again.

We have maintained high levels of attendance, last week whole school attendance was 96% which is a higher percentage than the national average for mainstream schools.  It is so important after this past year considering how much pupils have missed, that all pupils attend school every day to catch up on their learning.

Pupils have welcomed our new goats Candy and Nora enjoying walking, grooming and caring for the goats.  The goats have had a positive impact on our pupils.  The school has also purchased eight hand reared chickens of various different breeds and varieties from a local West Sussex farm.   Pupils who are interested, will have the opportunity to collect eggs and feed the chickens and learn more about nature.

I hope that you all have a lovely break over half term and enjoy some good quality family time.  We all look forward to pupils returning to school on Tuesday 8th June.

Best wishes

We have two new additions here at Muntham.  Two Angorra Cross goats have joined the school farm. Candy and Nora are two young friendly goats who have been raised around children on a local West Sussex farm.

Pupils will be able to walk the goats and learn how to groom, feed and look after the goats. This is another exciting development of our school farming programme. 

Candy and Nora are shedding their winter fluffy coats at the moment and have a fine short haired coat underneath to keep cool over the summer months.

I can happily now share the fantastic news with you all, that the school has been successful in our planning application to build a new Therapy Centre.  I have been successfully sourcing grants to help fund the cost of this project.

A state of the art seven room specialist Therapy Centre will double the size of our current therapy building, this will be constructed within our school grounds.  This new facility will provide plenty of space for all of our pupils to receive a range of different therapies and counselling necessary to help meet pupils needs.

Building work is due to start during the Easter holidays to ensure the building is completed for next academic year.

It is certainly exciting times ahead for Muntham House School.

All pupils and staff were encouraged to wear red to school for a small donation to Red Nose Day. Pupils had the opportunity to participate in different activities throughout the day. 

The pupils enjoyed the day and had great satisfaction in helping others, giving them a sense of worth and pride.  Well done to all for the amount of money raised. 

Red Nose Day donations help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was great to see so many pupils dressing up in character to celebrate world book day. Pupils and staff alike dressed as characters from their favourite books.

This day was another opportunity to celebrate literature and a love of learning for pupils at Muntham House School

New Primary Floor Opens 

A new Primary Residential Floor has opened for KS1 and 2 pupils here at Muntham House School.  The whole floor has been refurbished and is now freshly decorated with age appropriate designs creating a home away from home.  The new floor has created a safe and welcoming environment with a highly trained and experienced staff team on hand to support and care for all of our pupils.  The Care staff focus on developing pupils social, emotional skills and improving their self confidence and self esteem.  A range of engaging and exciting activities is on offer to pupils such as Forest Schools, Cooking, Arts and Crafts, Lego and walking the school dogs.  Each separate floor will then have dinner together creating a small supportive family and an environment for pupils to relax and enjoy evening meal times together.  Pupils will also have the opportunity to receive additional tutoring and support to catch up on their academic progress if necessary.

A new kitchen has been created where the pupils can bake cakes and cookies with staff on a regular basis.  Pupils can enjoy our new Cinema Room to relax and enjoy down time together positively during the evening once they have enjoyed their evening meal together. Pupils then follow the floor routines, going to bed at the same time every night and getting a good nights sleep in before school starts the following morning.

Year 11 Parents / Carers,  Please note that Muntham House School will not be opening for exam results collection this year.

This is due to the continuing COVID-19 situation and the need to reduce infection and maintain social distance etc.

This is a shame as it's always lovely to see the pupils get their well-earned results.  However, I know how hard our pupils have worked towards their GCSE examinations.

This year we will therefore be sending these out via email and also posting the results 1st class on the morning of 20th August 2020.
