Dear Parents   (from Miss Laura ) added 30/08/19

This is an exciting albeit slightly daunting journey I am about to embark on. My aim is to have a smooth transition for the school with changes where possible kept to a minimum and the school fundamentally remaining the same. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Website and Facebook to be reviewed in September 2019, I will let you know the new details in the first week of the Autumn Term (Week Commencing 9th September).

Timetable Autumn Terms 1&2

As there is no second teacher it has proved impossible to have all the Marlborough classes on a Thursday with a sensible finish time that is not too late; therefore with a great deal of consideration some of the classes have been moved to a Friday. I really hope this works for those affected.

Dear Parents and Children/Girls

I am writing to you all to let you know that I have decided the time has come for me to “hang up my ballet shoes” ! I have been so lucky to have had a job I have loved for so many years and I am sure I will miss everyone both children and parents.

The good news is that Miss Laura has agreed to keep the school going and will take over completely in September. She will be sending out her own Newsletter next week with details of her plans for the future.

I have known Laura and her family since she was 10 yrs old, trained her and encouraged her to apply to the RAD to study for her BA(Hons) in the Art & Teaching of Classical Ballet. She gained her Degree, Licentiate of Royal Academy of Dance and Full Registered Teacher Status before starting her teaching career at a large school in Bristol. Home beckoned and she returned to the area and began teaching for me. I am confident she will continue to uphold the standard of the school and that it will grow under her care and guidance.

I have been teaching for 48 years and started the school in the Church Rooms, Ramsbury in 1974. To mark my retirement I would like to invite you all to join me at the Church Rooms on Sunday 7th July, for a “drop in” Tea Party between 2.30 ��" 4.30. There will be photos and videos covering events of the school over the years. Please share this invitation with any ex pupils as it would be lovely to see everyone to reminisce. There have been many, many children over the years and we are now on 2nd generation!!

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to give either myself or Laura a ring.

Thank you for all your support and hope you will be able to join me on 7th July.

With best wishes - Miss Liz

  I am sorry to have to break the news that Miss Tara will be leaving at the end of this term due to her back problems and wishing to spend more time with her daughter. There will be a collection for her and card for the children to sign which will be left with a Mum from each class over the next few weeks

As a consequence of this news I am re arranging the timetable and venues for the Summer Term as follows. All Marlborough classes will take place at St Mary's School. Slight alteration to Pewsey Timetable. PLEASE CHECK TIMETABLE PAGE FOR CLASS TIMES
