    To be a Pilgrim is... to be musical, Episode 4

    Pilgrims’ is not a music school, as you know, but it is undeniable that Pilgrims sing and play music exceptionally well. Actually, that’s an understatement. I have enjoyed music at many schools, including many schools that are also genuinely musical, but Pilgrims’ is leagues ahead. The strings are sublime, and the trebles and other voices are incredible (and this is in no way limited to just the ‘professional’ singers - the Choristers and Quiristers). The brass, woodwind and percussion are phenomenal.

    To be a Pilgrim is... to Keep Calm and Keep Skipping, Episode 3

    "Keep calm and carry on” is a cliché, certainly, but Pilgrims do this and so much more, hence my title is the slightly alternative: keep calm and keep skipping. Skipping may sound curious to some of you, but it happens in the School so often and so spontaneously.

    To be a Pilgrim is... to remember

    This weekend, we remember Henry James, a much loved, much respected former Pilgrim who sadly died a year ago on Sunday 19 September of leukaemia at the age of thirteen. Henry had a big heart and a big smile. He was kind, gentle and creative. He was quirky and so very happy. Henry was genuine. Without fail, he would be part of any Lego club in the school he would happily build serious constructions with his brother Edward. I know you all join me in sending our love, thought and prayers to Edward, Agata and Robin and their wider family. God bless you, Henry. You are so missed.
