College Host Year 6 For ‘Hot Choc Choc Lunch’


The College Leadership Team were joined by Year 6 pupils over choc lunch on Thursday as they opened the doors to the Sixth Form Common Room and played host to the younger girls.  

Welcomed with hot chocolate and fresh doughnuts, the Junior School pupils were thrilled to be invited by College to chat and socialise in the designated Sixth Form space. The informal setting provided an ideal opportunity for the different year groups to get to know each other better and to share their memories of the school thus far.  

Although several of the younger girls have sisters at the Senior School, they were keen to see more of the grounds and are already looking forward to progressing into Year 7. As Senior School pupils will take part in a range of new lessons and subjects in different classrooms. They did have one question for the College girls however, – just how do they remember all the door codes?  

“I’m looking forward to walking around the school, exploring it all and not just being in one classroom” – Agnes 

“I can’t wait for all the extra sports – I love sports!” – Jess 

As talk turned to life in the Senior School, Izzy and Rosie reminisced over some of their funniest memories, which included dancing in the rain and getting soaking wet before mock examinations and nightmares in D&T lessons with the glue gun.  

The girls found common ground in divulging their experiences of the greatly loved Junior School residential to Robinwood. Discovering that all the groups successfully evaded the piranhas at the piranha pool and were united in their pride over completing the night line challenge – one that they all found particularly challenging.  

Imparting their words of wisdom further, Rosie and Ruby encouraged the younger generation to take part in all the trips overseas that The Mount offer – including Namibia, skiing in Folgarida and the Borealis Expeditions to Iceland and Greenland. They recommended they complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award, explaining how it would be beneficial to them in the future and that they would gain lots of skills and have a great time together. 

The wonderful choc lunch finished up with the girls making full use of the facilities – partaking in games of ping pong and pool, and socialising on the comfy sofas before lessons restarted. Year 6 pupils didn’t want to leave – and it was easy to see why.
