This summer we’re celebrating 150 years of the Houses of Parliament! It took nearly 30 years to rebuild the Palace of Westminster after a devastating fire, but in 1870 it was finally completed with the beautiful mosaic tiles in Central Lobby.
To help us celebrate, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons is calling on budding young artists to take part in an exciting summer art competition to design their own democracy themed tile!

Good luck to all!
Please see below for the latest photo diary. It has been quite a journey these last few months, but we made it! We have tried to capture some of the spirit of these times in the videos. Sorry it’s taken a while and sorry if we missed some photos… but please enjoy. Have a lovely summer. Hopefully we will all be back together in September!
Please note that for at least the first half-term, school meal options will be a choice of either a Hot or Cold Deli Bag. The menus for the first three weeks can be found below:
Skylarks pupils once again took part in the annual competition, which sees schools from across the country participating. The Oxford University German Department called all young learners of German to enter the competition and the theme this year was “Natur und Technik” – Nature and Technology.
Skylarks were asked to research and reflect on “Natur und Technik” in the German-speaking world, how and where the two concepts overlap and what challenges they might pose to us in the 21st century.
There were more than 750 entries submitted by pupils from 97 schools across the UK.
We are extremely pleased to report that four of our pupils were successful in the competition! Maisie McCormick and Zachary Bosworth were highly commended in the category “Design a robot and label its parts, write what it can do.” Darcey Meredith was highly commended in the category “You’re going to set up a community on Mars – draw your spaceship and the fifteen most important things to take, and label them.” Matilda O’Connor was runner up for the same category, and has been invited to receive her prize at Oxford’s prestigious Bodleian Library next year. We should add that it is the second year in a row that Matilda has received a prize – bravo!
Well done to all of the Skylarks who participated, the standard of your work was truly excellent.
