Her Royal Highness, the Princess of Wales visits Colham Manor
We were honoured to receive an extra special visit from Her Royal Highness, The Princess of Wales! During her visit to the Children’s Centre as patron of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance, she shook hands with staff and spoke to three-year-old Akeem from our Nursery.
In an incredibly sweet conversation, Her Royal Highness introduced herself as Catherine and asked him if had a poppy of his own. Akeem said he "hadn't found one" yet and reached out to touch the poppy on her jacket. The Princess asked: "Would you like mine? You can have my poppy,". Akeem took the poppy while Kate explained its significance. "It’s remembering all the soldiers who died in the war," she added. "There you go, that’s for you. Look after it!"
What a fantastic experience!

The St Patrick's Day game is the biggest event of the season at the London Irish club. Our children joined more than 250 pupils, to sing the popular folk song The Field's of Athenry. It was an amazing performance from our children, celebrating Irish culture and taking part in the London club's history.
The Raising Aspirations programme provides an opportunity for our pupils to prepare for a career in the Career Media Industry. Our children visited Global Academy to develop their practical skills in readiness for making informed choices about their education in the future.
Our Pupil Parliament children visited the magnificent rooms in the historic Houses of Parliament, House of Lords and the House of Commons. The children were able to develop their understanding of democracy and find out about the work within UK parliament.
Our pupils develop their exploratory skills through Science with our partnership school, John Lyon in Harrow. Children explore energy in foods and make scientific predictions before testing their ideas out in the laboratory. These activities support the pupils understanding of secondary school, through meaningful and educational experiences.

The Turing Scheme recognises widening access opportunities to all pupils. 15 Colham Manor pupils were provided with the support to access life-changing experiences in Barcelona, to attend our Culture in the Classroom project. They removed any potential barriers for the children to immerse oneself deeply in the Spanish culture, develop their language and intercultural skills. Thank you Turing!

Combining education for learning and fun - where the reward includes going on rides, our pupils joined 10,000 children via our partnership school ACS in Thorpe Park. We aim to inspire before we educate. The STEAM event was set out as a game which motivated learning in science, technology and the arts. Many children left having identified what they want to do in the future.
Voice in a Million inspires pupils with an important message, that raises awareness of the plight of children in care and the importance of adoption or fostering. Our pupils attended the OVO, Wembley and used their skills to bring a voice to the thousands of children in the UK care system.
