Save our trees....
There seems to have been an influx of lower school pupils savagely attacking the horse chestnut trees in search of conkers this year. Last year saw one of the worst conker harvests England has ever seen, and year 7s throwing sticks and stones at the trees trying to knock the nuts off are not going to help anybody.

Our message: Leave the trees alone! What did they ever do to you? If you want the conkers (we appreciate there are still some pupils of a conker-playing mindset) then wait for them to fall off the trees naturally. They're not as hard when they're knocked down anyway, so you're unlikely to pick a "seven-er!"

It is also worth pointing out that according to several teachers (although not all!) that area of the school grounds is out of bounds for pupils due to the proximity of the teacher?s cars.
