A bonfire night with a difference

Fire pits, sparklers, toffee apples and pizza ovens; it might not have been a traditional bonfire night with a large crowd and loud fireworks… but it was certainly a night to remember!

Fire pits, sparklers, toffee apples and pizza ovens; it might not have been a traditional bonfire night with a large crowd and loud fireworks… but it was certainly a night to remember!

After the huge success of the Film and Food Festival before half term, the Co-Curricular department organised another impressive event to bring the community together in their Houses.

It was a delightfully clear and crisp autumn night which meant that girls were able to gather (in their year bubbles) outside across the school. Each group was greeted with fire pits, sparklers, neon light wands and toffee apples. Girls enjoyed a supper of homemade pizza thanks to the hard work of our Catering team and our new outdoor pizza ovens as well as freshly-cooked chips from food stalls.

A particular highlight for most girls, and probably most staff too, was toasting marshmallows over the fire pits. Wrapped up in hats and scarves, this was a perfect, cosy November night.

The bonfire night celebrations were a special chance for girls to spend some time safely outdoors with friends. And, needless to say, the girls can’t wait for the second outing of the pizza ovens!
