Houses Get in the Festive Spirit with London Outings

Two Houses enjoyed festive outings this week: White House went ice skating at Somerset House, and Crawfurd attended a Silent Disco walking tour of London. See below for the full write-ups:


On Wednesday evening Crawfurd headed to Trafalgar Square for a Silent Adventure. Hosted by the flamboyant Anthony, the girls danced and sang their way through Trafalgar Square, around Leicester Square, past China Town to such delights as Last Christmas and the unforgettable Let It Go.

There’s no doubt that the Fifth Form were the first to get excited about the dancing options and soon the rest of the House was chopping carrots, changing light bulbs, milking reindeer and wrapping presents! An unforgettable evening for us all and thanks to all the girls for getting so involved and giving Walking in the Air a new lease of life!

White House

Our annual house outing to Somerset House was once again a huge success. The girls enjoyed the skating, festive atmosphere, and the opportunity to buy some Christmas presents in the Fortnum & Mason pop-up market.

It is always lovely to watch the more confident skaters and the older girls helping their friends around the ice rink. We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Zizzi’s afterwards. A wonderful occasion that is always a highlight of our school year.

After supporting the first team play their match, Murrell Sixth Form students filled up with pizza and cake in preparation for an evening of ice skating at Hampton Court. When we arrived, Hampton Court was illuminated with colourful lights epitomising the Christmas spirit. Even though there were a few falls, it was always shortly followed by laughter.

Eventually everyone successfully managed to move away from clinging to the edge of the rink, to attempt to gracefully glide along the ice. Overall, it was a real bonding experience for Murrell Sixth Form, there was no better way to begin the build up to Christmas and we are all looking forward to continuing the celebrations as a whole House at the Murrell Christmas Party next week.
