School Calendar 2018 - 2019 for West Sussex independent school, Sompting Abbotts Preparatory School
Children from Years 4 - 7 will be attending Glyndebourne to see Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore. These Glyndebourne performances enable young audiences to immerse themselves, often for the first time, in the excitement of opera. These are fully staged, full length performances with an on-stage introduction specifically for schools. Light, lyrical and bursting with energy, L’elisir d’amore was the biggest success of Donzietti’s career – a comedy with the softest of hearts and the sweetest of melodies. Updating the action to the 1940s, Annabel Arden’s production celebrates the opera’s original joyful, colourful spirit, painting an affectionate picture of an Italy on the brink of political change.

A warm welcome to our PP1 parents this year. Please meet us in the classroom to discover what your child will be doing at school this year. It's an important stage for your child’s learning, and fun one too, mainly learning through play-based activities. Your child will also be learning about routine and developing early literacy and maths skills, learning about the world around them and learning social skills. There'll be plenty of time for questions over a cup of tea or coffee.
PP4 Parents’ Coffee Morning. This year, the final year of KS1, will see your child being encouraged to work more independently.
