Pupils venture down the rabbit hole to Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

This Friday we welcomed over 50 Year 6 children and accompanying parents to a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to spend the afternoon learning more about the Senior School, meeting future classmates, and of course, drinking lots of tea!

Children and parents were welcomed to Rendcomb’s stunning Library for a drinks reception and quiz based on the classic novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll. The Library was decorated with an array of characters and quotes from the novel and film, with a number of outlandish hats on show from both pupils and parents.

Head of College, Rob Jones, and Head of Key Stage 3, Rachael Fielding, welcomed the guests and gave them a brief introduction to life as a pupil at Rendcomb College Senior School.

Speaking about the event, Rob said: “What a fantastic way for the children and parents to end the week. It was a pleasure to meet so many future parents and pupils of the Senior School.”

The children took part in a number of themed activities including croquet, pin the smile on the Cheshire Cat, and a Tweedledum and Tweedledee three-legged race.

Everyone was then taken to the Reading Room, unveiling its transformation into the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. The room was decked with bunting, playing host to a giant house of cards, chocolate fountain, and a table fit for the Mad Hatter and March Hare themselves.
