Letter to Parents


Dear Parents,


As I expect most of you are aware, I shall be taking some time off over the next couple of academic school terms as my partner and I are expecting a baby in September.

During my maternity leave, drama lessons and drama clubs will be commencing as normal.

School lessons and private drama lessons will be taught by Claudia Hope who is a very experienced drama practitioner and director. She will also run both Bojangles on a Wednesday and the After School Drama Club. Claudia was in school with me last week and so she has observed all my sessions and spent time meeting all the children.

The Thursday Bojangles Drama Club will be run by Sophie Glibbery who assists me currently. Sophie specialises in imaginative drama lessons for the younger child and the children simply adore her.

Should you have any questions with regards to the above, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0797 412 7265 or at jemma-bateman@hotmail.co.uk.

I have taught drama at Charterhouse for twelve years and I can honestly say that working with the children is an absolute joy. Their talent, enthusiasm and energy is a continuous source of both inspiration and encouragement.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the years and I look forward to seeing you and the children when I return in my new role as drama teacher and mum!


Best wishes,
