Well.....here I am again, one year on and so excited about telling you all about our second holiday at Coombe Mill in the Spring of this year. It was a truly wonderful holiday and started off perfectly as when we arrived our grocery shopping was already delivered from the local store to our accommodation, which we had ordered via Coombe Mill prior to arriving. Last year, we stayed in a 16th Century cottage, fully equipped and very much home-to-home. This year, we decided to stay in one of the Scandinavian lodges - what can I say? They are new, contemporary and spacious. Very much designed for today’s modern family, comprising of an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom covering the first floor, two double bedrooms and one single on the ground floor alongside a family bathroom. With the lodge being so well equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine / dryer, log burner and even toys and books for the children, it made our week away extremely stress free!! It was total bliss, sitting on the veranda with beautiful views over the river and valley, surrounded only by lawns and woods ensuring tranquil peace and quiet, whilst our two young boys (aged 3 and 4) happily played in the wooden play area, right next to our lodge! It was so relaxing to see the children having so much fun in such a safe environment. There was plenty for the children to enjoy. Every morning they joined the tractor and trailer ride for the special morning feed run. It is a chance for the children to experience the magic and freedom of the farm. It was so wonderful to see them grow in confidence as they helped feed the animals under the watchful eye of farmer Nick. What we love about Coombe Mill is that it is always a holiday that the children remember, and they talk about for months after leaving. They met new friends and helped out on the farm, which I know is an experience they will cherish. Not only is this a very sociable experience and great fun for the young ones, but they learn through play without even realising it!! A few evenings we ate in the local pub in St Breward, which has a very extensive and wonderful menu. A few times we helped ourselves to the well stocked freezer in reception, which has freshly prepared main dishes, desserts and cakes. It took all the pressure off of cooking, with the added beauty of settling the bill at the end of our stay. We were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather again, so every day after the feed run we took a picnic to the beach and the boys went rock pooling on the spectacular North Cornish coast. But even in the rain it would still be my choice of holiday with very young children. Just 5 minutes up the road is the local swimming pool, so this really is an ‘all weather’ holiday. We have already booked again for next year (along with most other families who we met on the Farm). This is the beauty of Coombe Mill - it is open all year and the tractor rides also happen on a daily basis all year round. If I could choose between a beach holiday abroad or a Farm Holiday at Coombe Mill, then this would win hands down every time. What else do you need? Wonderful accommodation, play areas, farm and fishing lakes set in the Bodmin Moor with beautiful sandy beaches and great pubs just a short drive away!! For more information, please visit the website www.coombemill.com or call 01208 850344 for more information - you can also check out the Coombe Mill active Facebook site, where you will find latest farm news and customer reviews.

“Looking for a new school for your child - the transition from Primary to Secondary“ Louise Simpson, Head, Bromley High School It is very easy to look at data when choosing a secondary school for your child. All schools will try to spin their exam results, be they SATS, GCSE or A levels and will try to convince you that this is all that matters. Here at Bromley High School we believe in education in the true sense of the word. Identifying what makes your daughter tick, nurturing her talents and sparking in her an excitement and a passion for learning. Of course, the public exam results that come out of such a nurturing and supportive, not to mention, challenging, academic environment are excellent: This year our SATS results are our best ever, with 98% of our Y6 girls achieving Level 5 in English and 94% achieving the same level in maths. Our most recent A level results were 88% A and B with 32% A* and 66% A* or A grades (2010) and at GCSE three quarters of the exams taken gained an A* or an A grade. One of our greatest strengths is our freedom from the constraints of the national curriculum. As an independent school we can choose our own courses of study, adopt innovative educational ideas, like Critical Thinking for our GCSE pupils and can add enrichment activities, not as a bolt on, but as an integral part of what we believe in. Every single girl in Years 7 to 9 was involved in our recent Drama Festival. Each girl developing team-working, confidence-building skills in front of her classmates and playing her part in the success of her group’s production. It is rare that such activities are offered in schools where the academic output appears to be the main thrust of the school; and yet our girls do just as well in the exams. So what is it about this provision of a broad education which makes for a successful pupil? The confidence and independence that our girls develop, within the supportive environment of Bromley High School, is outstanding. When choosing a school for your daughter I would urge parents not to look at data tables, but at the pupils who leave the school. It is their personal development, their determination to succeed, and their attitude to life which are indicators of the success of a school. I would welcome you to come and meet our girls at any time, and look forward to meeting you. Ms Louise Simpson, Head
