Whole School Photograph – Monday 24th June 2024 

We are excited to carry on the traditional whole school photograph which will be taken in school on Monday 24th June. All children must attend school on time and in the correct uniform along with their hats. Mrs Crocker will provide information after the event for all parents who wish to purchase this fantastic keepsake. 


Kew Fête – tomorrow 22nd June 

A reminder that Year 4 children will run their annual Elderflower Stall at the Kew Fête tomorrow from 11am – 6pm. With recipes and delights that have all been made by hand, it promises to be a fun and delicious event. Parking can be sticky around the Green, so we suggest you jump on the tube/bus. Entry is free and we look forward to seeing you there. 


Senior School Musical – Save the date 

We are looking forward to presenting Peter Pan, which is our Senior School Musical for 2024. The children have been rehearsing and practising the fabulous songs and we can promise you it is going to be an amazing show.  This year we have decided to prioritise tickets for families in Years 5 and 6 as this is their only annual production. Therefore we will not be offering tickets to parents of the children in Year 4. The Year 4 children will still be required to attend as they sing beautifully as the additional choir. There will be two performances, an evening performance, which will take place on Thursday 4th July at 6pm, and a matinee performance, which will take place on Friday 5th July at 2pm. Please save these dates in your diary. The younger children will all watch the performance during the dress rehearsal so we ask that no younger siblings attend either of the final performances. Mrs Doyle will be sending an email next week to all parents in Years 5 and 6 to book your tickets. 


Den Day – 4th July 

Den Day, which was originally planned for next week, will now take place on Thursday 4th July. All of the children will have fun building dens in school to raise money for Save the Children. It will be a fun way for us to raise funds that will change children’s lives, whilst learning new skills, including team building. Once the dens have been built the children will enjoy a picnic lunch inside their dens. On Wednesday 3rd July, we kindly ask that each child brings in an item from home to help build the dens. This can be cardboard boxes, a blanket or a sheet, some clothes pegs, or any other item from around the house that might make good building materials. A link to donate to Save the children can be found by clicking here. 


Summer Camp: 15th to 19th July  

Our Broomfield Summer Camp is in hot demand. This fun bumper packed week is something that all the children look forward to. It is run by our staff and is supported by members of our school community.  There are two sessions each day; mornings run from 9.30am-12 noon and afternoons between 1-3.30pm.  Children staying for a whole day should bring a packed lunch which must not include nuts or eggs.  We provide drinks and snacks. If you missed the form in last week’s newsletter don’t worry, there is still time to sign up. Click here to complete the form Summer Camp Form 2024 and email Mrs Crocker on admin@broomfieldhouse.com if you need any assistance or information.

PTA Highlights

BHS Park Run Takeover - Saturday 15th June

A hearty bunch of BHS parents and children gathered on Saturday morning at Old Deer Park to test their mettle on a damp morning. While a large crowd gathered under leafy branches and umbrellas to cheer them on, the fast, fierce, and relentless runners took three laps around the park for a jaunty 5K. Some of the children even got in on the action and ran a lap. Magnus and Melody (Y3) took on the entire 5K at an impressive pace.

It was amazing to see families from every year come together for some (very) fresh air and breakfast treats.

Congratulations to Nicole (Frankie Y3), Leon (Oliver, KG), and Mr Anstey—all who came in well at the front of the pack.

Dads Night

The first Whole School Dads’ Night in many years was held last Friday night, starting at the Kew Gardens Hotel and continuing at So Bar Richmond. We could tell you all about it but the first rule of Dads’ Night is… Don’t talk about Dads’ Night! Want to know what goes on at Dads’ Night? Join the ‘BHS Dads+ – Whole School’ WhatsApp group and come to the next one: https://chat.whatsapp.com/HdZbt1HFcXiHz3uHIQ7Vj2


Sports Day

Broomfield House bathed in glorious sunshine on Wednesday, as we held our annual sports day at the prestigious London Welsh ground. After a closely fought contest for points, congratulation go to Mead House who was ultimately victorious.

Two exceptional records were shattered during the competition. Noah (Y6) soared above the competition in the high jump, clearing an impressive 1.20 meters, setting a new school record. Not to be outdone, Beatrice (Y6) unleashed a mighty throw in the shotput, launching the shot a staggering 13.9 meters, another new Broomfield House record.

The competitive spirit wasn’t limited to the children. The parent races provided endless entertainment, with cheers and laughter from the sidelines as mums and dads dug deep to claim bragging rights. The staff race was another highlight, showcasing some surprising athleticism (and perhaps a touch of competitiveness) from Broomfield House’s teachers.

Overall, our Sports Day was a resounding success. It was a day filled with sunshine, records broken, and memories made. Thank you to Mr Pache for organising such a wonderful event and congratulations to all the participants, especially the record-breakers Noah and Beatrice!

Junior Sports Day

Photos are now available to download from the gallery on the Parent Portal. Please do not share group photos online (including social media).

Induction Morning

We had a wonderful morning on Thursday, welcoming all new families to Broomfield House School! Mr Anstey and Mrs Pache talked about the importance of communication and collaboration between parents, teachers, and children to ensure a holistic and supportive learning journey.

The children settled really well and enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning with the Early Years team.
