THE KING’S SCHOOL GLOUCESTER. by Robertson, David.: (1974)
218 pp, 8vo (8 11/16″ H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. “The King’s School continues an educational tradition that has lasted more than 900 years, with only one short break between the dissolution of the medieval Abbey of St. Peters and Henry VIII’s establishment of the present school as part of the new Cathedral Church in 1545. A monastic school was well established when Abbot Serlo arrived in 1072, followed by an Almonry School which flourished up to the Dissolution. Through out the 17th and 18th centuries it was one of England’s principal grammar schools, to which were sent the sons not only of leading Gloucestershire families but also of families of distinction from all over the country. The 19th century and the early years of this saw the School facing severe financial problems, but their eventual solution by the Ministry of Education and the Church Commissioners has led to revival and rapid expansion in recent years. Former pupils include many men who have achieved positions of national importance, including the joint founders of the Sunday School movement, one of the founders of Methodism, several bishops and an Archbishop of Canterbury, a famous explorer, and the compo ser of the American National Anthem. In these days of widespread questioning of teaching practices, Mr. Robertson’s book will be of interest to historians and educationalists as an account of a school which has managed to maintain tradition and high standards over many centuries and to combine them with the most modern teaching.” Minor wrinkle at bottom of spine, light browning to parts of endpapers, minor rub marks on front board, tiny speck on fore-edge of textblock.

Schools issue jobs warning over unpaid fees
Private schools and colleges have urged parents not to withhold fees during the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis – or risk job cuts.
Independent schools across Gloucestershire have closed or introduced remote learning although King’s School in Gloucester is among those offering supervision for a small number of key workers’ children before the spring term ends on Friday.
The chief executive of the Independent Schools Association has warned some schools may close if fees are withheld and explained schools were working with parents to ease financial concerns.
Neil Roskilly, whose organisation represents around 540 schools in the UK, was among headmasters and owners who wrote to The Times expressing their concerns.
In the county the sector supports thousands of jobs – with Cheltenham Ladies’ College alone employing 662 staff directly.
Mr Roskilly told inews.co.uk: “Some schools are concerned obviously that some parents may not pay fees for the summer term.
“Some of the schools have put in a little bit of a fee reduction already for September in their modelling to cover the fact there won’t be any extracurricular activities over the course of the summer term, or lunches that they won’t have to provide.”
He said some schools faced an uncertain future without deep reservoirs of money to make up for any shortfall in fees.
“We see schools close every year,” he told the i. “Will there be more as a result of this? Yes, I suspect so unfortunately, because they don’t have huge reserves.”
The letter to The Times, signed by senior figures in the independents schools sector, warned of job losses if fees are withheld.
It reads: “We want to reassure hard-pressed families that schools are doing what they can to help in the present emergency.
“Private schools are operating extensive online learning platforms so that children’s education will not be interrupted.
“Despite that, some parents might consider withholding fees if the nature of provision has changed, albeit only in the short term.”
The letter continues: “No school wants to make teachers redundant, recognising that the relationship between teacher and pupils is the most precious commodity; parents will want reassurance that this will still be the case in September.
“We are happy to give that reassurance while recognising that parents also face unprecedented challenges.
“Our schools are doing everything possible to support parents financially during the present crisis.”
The King’s School, which charges up to £6,620 per term for day pupils, is closed to all bar keyworkers children and essential staff.
A statement from the school said: “Online education is being provided to all pupils and will continue to be until the government permits us to open again.
“The keyworker school will remain open throughout the Easter holidays and next term. The school’s facilities have been offered to the NHS, the local state primary school, and a local charity who may use our catering facilities.”
David Moreton, headmaster at the school said: “Online education is being provided to all pupils and will continue to be until the government permits us to open again.
“The keyworker school will remain open throughout the Easter holidays and next term.
“The school’s facilities have been offered to the NHS, the local state primary school, and a local charity who may use our catering facilities.”
Cheltenham Ladies’ College moved to remote learning for the last week of term, which ended on Saturday. The college charges up to £14,390 per term for boarders and up to £9,525 for day pupils.
A statement on the college website reads: “Our unwavering approach to education has been, and always will be, to put pupils first, and in these testing times, we will continue to provide an outstanding education to our students across the globe.”
Cheltenham College, which charges up to £12,590 per term for boarders, will also use remote learning after the Easter break on April 15.
The college has made its car parks available for use by NHS staff during the coronavirus crisis.
Other schools offering boarding in the county include Dean Close in Cheltenham, Westonbirt School, Wycliffe School in Stonehouse and Rendcomb School near Cirencester, which opened a new sixth form centre in February as part of its centenary celebrations.
According to the British Educational Suppliers Association, there are 2,408 independent schools in the UK, employing 61,500 people.
In its latest report The Independent Schools Council, which lists 23 members in Gloucestershire, says 6.5 per cent of pupils in the country attend independent schools, rising to more than 15 per cent over the age of 16.

90,000 Wicker Man Saga Walkthrough
In the last part we visited “Vinland”, a beautiful picturesque region of the present territory of North America, where Gorm, one of the leaders in the Order of the Ancients, was finally killed.
The journey has taken a long time, and it is time to continue putting things in order in England and in your settlement of Ravensthorpe.
Talk to Randwi and select a new region to form an alliance. The only option with the recommended level of influence is Gloucestershire, where Gunnar went if you had already talked to the blacksmith’s friend.
The Wickerman Saga questline will begin with an interesting storyline and a difficult moral dilemma at the end.
Note: In our case, after talking with Sigurd, we talked to Ubba Ragnarson, who thanked Eyvor for allowing Ivara to die with honor and an ax in his hands. Ubba donated a silver ring as a gift.
First Night of Samhain
Travel to Gloucester and find Gunnar near St. Kenelm’s Falls.
Talk to the blacksmith and his chosen one Brigita, who are planning to get married soon, and follow Gunnar to the local Eldorman Keenan.
While Keenan is busy, meet Teudur, who is clearly not friendly to the Danes.
Upon completion of your conversation with the current and future rulers of Gloucester, escort Teudur to St. Kenelm’s Falls, and in the course of the conversation, the motives for such an attitude towards Eyvor and the Danes in general will become clear.
Protect Teudur from the boar attack and leave him to pray in silence by going to talk to Gunnar about the upcoming Samhain festival.
Try on the mask that makes up the image of Marie Louis and knock on several houses. The bottom line is simple – finish the verse greeting and get “moldy cheese”.
After completing the “sweets scale”, find Gunnar and the pier, who has already entered into a skirmish with the local bully.
Show the erroneous decision to be rude to the Danes and charge the Thug. Leave Gunnar in Modron’s hands and head out to celebrate and talk to Teudur.
Watch a lengthy cutscene and, if you wish, romance with a possible future ruler of Gloucester.
Traces and mysteries
Such partying and fanaticism of Teudur could not pass just like that. After waking up, Eyvor needs to restore the picture of the attack and the disappearance of the future Eldorman of Gloucestershire.
Inspect the broken jug, the traces of the struggle, the bloody trail and Gwilym’s bag, then leave the house, where they are already waiting for you on the street.
Fight off Keenan’s soldiers and find Modron, who sits on a kind of throne nearby.
She will send Eyvor to a Druid living in the forest northeast of her current location.
Talk to the Druid, pretending to be a spirit of light, and set fire to 5 straw effigies – three right in front of the house, one on the side of the tree and another on the pillar.
The druid will ask a riddle, the answer to which is worth looking for in the clues in and around his house:
- Inverted dagger to the right of the entrance;
- Table in the house – Three instruments of murder: the noose of the gallows, a knife and a vessel with poison;
- Under the house – a grave;
- Bundle of skulls on the wall to the right of the house;
- Symbol (Celtic knot) – to the left of the house;
- Statue of a woman in the lake behind the house.
Return to the Druid and Eyvor, based on the clues he finds, he will find the answers he needs.
The Stolen King
Find Modron nearby and reveal the possible whereabouts of Theudur’s kidnappers.
Follow her to the Thieves’ Cache to find and rescue a friend.
There will be many warriors in this fortification, and they are located close enough to each other, so spending time on stealth is not the best choice here.Even before the start of this mission, we tried to clear the “Cache of Thieves” secretly – 5 warriors can be killed by whistling to the canal at the main entrance, a few more can be neutralized by setting fire to oil, and of course the soldiers on the towers – the rest had to be killed openly.
Important! Do not forget to pick up treasures, Knowledge Book and weapons.
So Teudura can be found in the house next to the canal. Talk to Guilim about the murderer and escort the future Eldorman to Modron, which is waiting a couple of hundred meters away.
Leaving Teudur in Modron’s hands, return to Gloucester, being careful not to draw attention to yourself.
Find Brigid and talk to her, then take some time to the healer’s daughter, Gwenith.
Ask the founder of the festival at the entrance to the long house and head to the local church nearby. You can also find a woman in a badger mask and take the key from her, but you can enter the church in another way.
For example, notice a bunch of foliage and blue ribbons blowing in the wind.There is a window next to them, break the stained glass window and just go inside.
Go downstairs and talk to Keenan, who will tell a very interesting story …
At the end of the conversation, Eivor will have to make the first volitional decision – to kill Keenan or not.
Important! Don’t forget (if you haven’t already) to pick up the clue on the table in the room where Keenan was found about the identity of another member of the Order of the Ancients.
Time to find Modron, whom Eyvor personally handed over to the future ruler of Gloucestershire.Get to the marked area on the map and enter the caves.
Move forward, killing warriors and collecting treasures along the way, until you reach the central cave with the sacrificial altar.
Watch the cutscene and fight Modron. The enemy from her is not too formidable, but she is capable of ruffling stocks of provisions. Wasting no time, climb up to her to prevent her from firing at you with a bow.
This will force her to climb higher forests, where you can engage in close combat.
After the victory, watch another cutscene, including one with Odin, and make the final decision – to kill Modron or keep him alive.
This is actually a difficult moral dilemma. On the one hand, Modron partly deserves death – she framed Eyvor, tried to kill an innocent person. On the other hand, its main motive is the preservation of the already established order and care for its people, and the past inability to see changes to the world in Teudura.
So, if you decide to kill Modron, then the Gwenith who has come running will see the bleeding mother, and the young healer will give a dark prediction about the fate of Eyvor.
If you decide to keep Modron alive, she will stop trying to kill Theudur and work with him to bring Gloucestershire to prosperity.
Wicker Man Burning
If you previously decided to kill Keenan, then the quest chain will end there, if you allowed him to die a dignified death, then you have to return to Gloucester and help him in this.
Find Gunnar at the pier and watch the lengthy cutscene with “The Burning of the Wicker Man” …
Well, Gloucestershire, this distinctive region of England with strange and sometimes bloody traditions, remains in good hands.
It’s time to go back to Randwy and talk about what happened.
90,000 Gifts, menus, timing: how the British royal family celebrates Christmas
Kate Middleton and Prince William, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at Christmas service
The life of monarchs consists entirely of traditions that they must follow.Even events like the birth of children have their own customs, let alone holidays and celebrations. Every family has their own Christmas traditions, and the royal family is no exception. In our material, we invite you to get acquainted with some of them.
Members of the royal family send out many holiday cards. Usually we are talking about a family photo. Today they are also published on social networks, but getting a personally signed postcard is, of course, a special honor.Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are sending about 850 postcards! Those intended for close relatives may have more humorous signatures.
Christmas card 1998 Christmas card for Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Christmas card for Prince Charles and Princess Diana, 1984
For example, royal biographer Brian Howie noted that cousins and cousins like the Gloucesters and Kents receive a postcard signed by Lillibeth, the Queen’s childhood nickname.But postcards intended for politicians, for example, the prime minister, already have formal signatures. Others have to be content not with a personal signature, but with the queen’s stamp.

The Queen was shopping at Harrods
In the past, Elizabeth II enjoyed doing Christmas shopping herself. Wanting to find all the best for her family, the Queen went to Harrods: the department store received a special client after hours, so that the main woman in the UK could safely shop.
However, according to the biographer, in recent years security measures have become so strict that now Elizabeth II makes all her purchases through catalogs or on the Internet. However, now the tradition of offline shopping would be hampered by the coronavirus.
All Buckingham Palace staff receive gifts
At the beginning of the year, the palace staff must choose whether they would like to receive a gift certificate or a book certificate. Everyone who has worked for at least one year has the right to a gift, and the amount of the voucher increases for the length of service.For example, junior staff will receive a certificate worth £ 28, and this amount will increase to a maximum of £ 35 each year.
One week before Christmas, all staff members receive a gift from the Queen in one of the government chambers, after the head of staff presents his report on their work for the year.
In addition, the Queen is distributing about 1,450 Christmas puddings to her staff. Traditionally, she also donated about a centner of coal to the “worthy and needy” people living in Windsor.But today there are already few of them, since most of the houses have central heating.

Family meets Christmas at Sandringham
The royal family traditionally travels to the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk for Christmas. The country house has been owned by the royal family since 1862 and serves as an ideal place for winter holidays, as it is located on 24 hectares of land. The Queen’s famous gardens are also located there, the plants from which are used in the production of her Sandringham Celebration Gin.
However, this tradition also suffered from the pandemic this year. For the first time in 33 years, the Queen has changed the place of celebrating Christmas. Elizabeth II will celebrate the holiday with her husband, Duke Philip of Edinburgh, at Windsor Castle, where they have been since the beginning of November.

The Queen buys out an entire train carriage to get to Sandringham
But before, the gathering of the whole large family in an estate in the east of England was a whole event.So, the queen went there first about a week before Christmas, as well as thousands of other citizens striving home for the holidays by train.
True, it is impossible to find yourself in neighboring places with the queen. Elizabeth II hired an entire car of a regular regular train to King’s Lynn Station so that she, Prince Philip and their closest associates could travel to Norfolk.
The rest of the family arrives on Christmas Eve
Family members invited to spend the Christmas period with the Queen and Prince Philip at Sandringham are given a specific time to arrive on Christmas Eve.Each group is given a different time to come in accordance with the status in the family. The youngest members will be the first to arrive, while the most important, such as Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be the last to arrive.

Several Christmas trees are decorated in the family
According to former Royal Chef Darren McGrady, “The royal family has a large Christmas tree and a silver artificial tree in the dining room, which is about 30 years old.”
The big tree is finished decorating all together
When everything is assembled, the youngest members of the royal family are allowed to put the finishing touches on the tree decoration. However, it is known that the queen herself loves moderate decor, so she probably makes sure that the children do not decorate the Christmas tree too randomly.
The main tree is usually brought from her Windsor estate, in addition, the Queen usually donates trees to several churches, including Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, St Giles’ Cathedral and Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, and Crati Church in Balmoral.Churches and schools near Sandringham also receive Christmas trees from the Queen.
Beloved members of the royal family were invited to join the celebration only after marriage
Another royal tradition that has been shaken in recent years. It all started with an exception for the sake of Megan Markle, about which Prince Harry asked his grandmother, because Megan’s father’s house was so far away, and she simply had no one to celebrate Christmas with.

At that time, Meghan and Harry were already engaged.Next, Princess Beatrice broke the tradition by inviting her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli-Mozzi last Christmas.
Exchange of Christmas gifts takes place after afternoon tea on Christmas Eve
Paying tribute to the German roots of the dynasty, gifts are given on Christmas Eve (not Christmas morning). At the same time, humorous inexpensive gifts were accepted in the family. According to rumors, Kate Middleton once presented Prince Harry with the “Grow Your Own Girl” set (a popular Western trinket in the form of a figurine, which must be lowered into the water, where it swells and “grows”).Well, Princess Anne once presented Prince Charles with a leather toilet seat.
For each member of the family in the living room they assign their own place, where the rest put the gifts intended for him. They can be opened only after the permission of Prince Philip and certainly in front of the whole family.
It is known that Princess Diana, when she first became a member of the royal family, was not warned about this rule, and she spent money on cashmere and mohair scarves and sweaters for everyone.

Prince William and Prince Harry played against each other annually on the football field
Christmas is not only family feasts, but also sports games (so as not to lose shape while visiting grandmother – we all know this). Another royal tradition is the football match, which is attended by Prince Harry and Prince William, the staff of the palace in Sandringham and the locals.

Sons of Prince Charles used to play for different teams and were sure to wear leggings from football clubs that they themselves support (William is a fan of Aston Villa, and Harry is for Arsenal). The only exception was 2015 – then the brothers were in the same team.
Everyone Attends Church Service Together on Christmas Morning
Since the Queen is the head of the Church of England, the royal family cannot miss the Christmas morning service.The entire family goes – usually led by Prince Philip – to the Church of St. Mary Magdalene for a 45-minute service. Meanwhile, the Queen is taken to the church by car.
As with many families, turkey is served for dinner with the royal family at Christmas. Lunch is prepared by a professional chef. The table also serves lobster, shrimp salad and traditional side dishes: parsnips, carrots, Brussels sprouts. For dessert, there is a Christmas pudding with brandy.The menu does not change much from year to year.

The family then reunites for afternoon tea with a traditional Christmas muffin, followed by a 15-20 different course buffet dinner in the evening. Before the buffet table, the senior chef on duty is allowed to go into the hall to the royal family, where the queen personally offers him whiskey, after which a toast is made.
The Queen loves chocolate, especially dark chocolate, so she always has a chocolate treat for Christmas.She also likes mint,

After a formal dinner on Christmas night, everyone plays charades until midnight, but no one is allowed to go to bed until the queen has retired to her chambers.
The whole family watches the Queen’s appeal on TV
Elizabeth II, of course, records her Christmas address to the nation in advance, so on the day of the broadcast, everyone can get together and watch the broadcast, like other residents of Great Britain.The appeal is broadcast at three o’clock in the afternoon, and the entire schedule is usually subordinated so that everyone has the opportunity to watch it.
If other family members leave immediately after the holiday, the Queen usually stayed at Sandringham until early February. She also insisted that the Christmas decorations remain until she left. So do not beat yourself up if you are also taking too long to remove the tree, you just have a royal approach!

The main novelty of the week – the continuation of the fantasy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” – raised $ 62.2 million at the start and topped the North American distribution, but debuted worse than all films about the wizarding world invented by J.K. Rowling: the previous creatures in the first weekend were given $ 74.4 million, and “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” in the first three days raised $ 77.1 million.The record holder of the series is “The Deathly Hallows: Part II”, which raised $ 169.2 million in the first weekend.
But the worldwide gross of The Crimes of Grindelwald ($ 253.2 million) more than covered production costs, and the film is not doing badly.
Two other novelties of the box office in the top three could not get through: the comedy “Fast Family” and the crime thriller “Widows” grossed $ 14.7 and $ 12.3 million, respectively. Viewers preferred to watch the Grinch, voiced by Cumberbatch, and Freddie Mercury, played by Rami Malek.
Preliminary data on the top 10 American box office for the period from November 16 to 18, 2018 looks like this:
- Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – $ 62.
