A Note from the Head of Monmouth School Boys’ Prep

I was delighted to be invited by the Haberdashers’ Company to attend the Lord Mayor’s Show in the City of London last weekend. This was a very significant event for the Haberdashers’ because, for the first time in 50 years, the new incumbent Lord Mayor, William Russell, is himself a Haberdasher. The last time a Haberdasher was a Lord Mayor was 50 years ago, when William Russell’s own grandfather took the position. The Haberdashers made a very special weekend for representatives from all of their schools, including staff and pupils from our own senior schools who were warmly welcomed to the Hall. In addition the girls were able to perform in the procession demonstrating some fantastic dancing and a wonderful Chinese dragon. The boys from the senior school entertained the crowds with their amazing Jazz Orchestra, which included many boys who used to attend the boys’ prep. I hope you were able to see some of the clips on Twitter and the TV coverage; it was a very special event indeed!
