Musgrave House Report 

Musgrave House Captains - Phoebe & Tamsin (L6)

It has been a very busy year with all the Musgrave girls having lots of fun and taking part in a range of activities. We had a great start to the school year in 2017 by coming first in the Senior School House Netball and second in the Middle School House Lacrosse. To add to this Musgrave were awarded Best Technical team in House Drama. Last October one of our future House Captains, Tamsin, won the Senior School Art prize and Jacky curated a stunning Art display. 

In the Spring Term we prepared our House Gym routines to the musical Singing in the Rain and the music of Queen. Everyone had a great time rehearsing and also performing on the day so we could not be more happy to say... we won! Well done for all the hard work and focus combined with the Sixth Form’s amazing choreography. A special mention to Saskia for her final time performing in the House trio and for being such a great role model to the younger girls in the gym. We rounded the term off with the House Singing, which included a song from The Greatest Showman: a trip to Camberley to see the sing-along version of the film was great fun.

Summer Term sport is always so much fun, with the whole house out to support the teams in the sunny weather. One of our highlights of this term was placing first in Senior House Tennis. On Sports Day we all enjoyed the House Athletics in the morning, with many girls stepping up and taking part in events outside their comfort zones. The house spirit in the House Athletics relays was also very impressive. After enjoying spending time with our year group in the house picnic many girls went to swim for the house in House Swimming, where once again the house spirit was outstanding. To reward the girls for their motivation we came 3rd, with Isabella and the Upper 3 Medley Relay Team achieving a school record! 

The Musgrave girls have been very busy raising money for charity this year; over £1000 from a combination of badge sales, cake sales and the annual Easter egg hunt. When it came to the end of the school year in July we were all delighted that we came joint first in the Folley cup for the most successful house in the school. We thank Jess and Saskia for leading us all so well over the last year and we are looking forward to this year’s challenges and excitement.
