Spring 2012

Welcome to the Spring Term

We hope you had a good Christmas and New Year and will enjoy the events for the spring term which kicks off with a special event on 22nd January 2012.

One of our parents, Jens Christensen, has generously offered to give us a talk at the world-famous Shepperton Film Studios. We will meet at the studios at 10.30, and the session should finish by our usual time of 12.30.

The session is entitled Film Sound: What is that all about? During this talk you'll learn about the history, methods and technology of making film soundtracks. The talk will take place in a Mixing Theatre at the famous Shepperton Film Studio, where films like 'Harry Potter' and 'Hugo Cabret' were filmed.

Numbers are limited to 15 children, and we need to know names in advance. So please let us know as soon as you can if you plan to come, by email to

Other events for the term will start in February and are still to be announced. If you have ideas of future events you would like to see, please email us

If you have anything you would like to see on the web site or any material we could use, please send it to the web-master:
