Grandparents’ Day at Papplewick  School, Ascot, is always a popular event for boys and their grandparents — and this year was no exception.

On Saturday, 1st June, grandparents were special guests at the school for the day. They were greeted by their grandsons and offered refreshments before being escorted to the classrooms, where the boys showed off their work.

The boys’ usual high standard of artwork was on display in the Hall, including work from those art scholars who gained awards to senior schools this year.

A chapel service was led by Mr Harry Paget, Head of Divinity, before the boys took their grandparents on guided tours of the school. A concert in the school hall was followed by a barbecue lunch in the garden and a cricket match.

Tom Bunbury, Headmaster of Papplewick, said: “The boys are always very proud to show off their school and their work to their grandparents, who enjoy the event hugely.”

Papplewick School, Ascot,  About Papplewick....  ....

 Papplewick is a day, weekly, and full boarding preparatory school for around 200 boys between the ages of 6 and 13. Situated in 15 acres of land opposite Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, Papplewick has an excellent record for academic achievement and feeds many of the UK’s top independent senior schools including Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Wellington, Stowe and Bradfield.  

In the last two years the school has maintained its academic record, gaining no less than 26 awards to top independent schools, including three King’s Scholarships to Eton. Through its strong commitment to sports, the school also builds skills of teamwork, sportsmanship and responsibility.

As well as academic, sporting and cultural excellence, Papplewick aims to provide boys with the confidence and security they need to fulfil their potential, and the school strives to promote enthusiasm for life, contribution to the community and kindness to others amongst all its pupils. 

A report by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in 2013 remarks that relationships between pupils and teachers: ‘are an outstanding strength of the school and are seminal in creating the strong sense of a mutually supportive and trusting community.’

Please note the entrance to Papplewick is on A332 which is different from SATNAV instructions.
