Congratulations to Ellie Macleod who played two of her
A Level piano pieces at The Southampton Music Festival on 12th March winning The Janet Sherbourne Cup (U18 piano) for her performance
of Joachim Raff's ‘Romance'. She received very positive feedback from the adjudicator for both
pieces she played.
On Wednesday 22nd March, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Company came to School to deliver an exciting and dynamic workshop based on their brand new, critically acclaimed ballet ‘The Red Shoes’. A number of Lower School dancers took part with the opportunity to learn some repertoire from the show and work on some themes of storytelling through tableaux and movement. The dancers were given a fantastic insight into Matthew Bourne’s choreographic style and in the evening, dancers from across all years were lucky enough to visit The Mayflower Theatre to see the company in action performing ‘The Red Shoes’.

This year the annual King Edward's Thanksgiving event took on a slightly different format. The First Years travelled to St Nicholas' Church in Stoneham Lane, next to Wellington Sports Ground, where they participated in a Thanksgiving Service conducted by the Rev Sheena Williams in the presence of the Head Master. The remainder of the School community gave thanks for the School's founders and benefactors in the School Hall and welcomed The Ven Dr Peter Rouch, Archdeacon of Bournemouth, who gave a dynamic and inspirational address about love being the guiding principle for our lives.
The school history was somewhat re-enacted this week as two football teams from King Edward's travelled to Poole Grammar School to play their squads. The results were favourable for KES with a 1st team win 6-2 and a 2nd team win 5-4. During the war years, King Edward's was evacuated to Poole Grammar School where a number of similar matches would have taken place.
