    The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete. Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It’s a safe, happy, Ga Ga world. Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to Rock. On iPlanet all the musical instruments are banned. The Company Computers generate tunes and everybody downloads them. It is an age of Boy Bands and of Girl Bands. Of Boy and Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Nothing is left to chance, hits are scheduled years in advance. 

    Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.

    But Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming cities, down in the lower depths live the Bohemians. Rebels who believe that there was once a Golden Age when the kids formed their own bands and write their own songs. They call that time, The Rhapsody. 

    Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see. 

    Legend persists that somewhere on iPlanet instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe and draw it from stone. Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man? 

    He’s just a poor boy. From a poor family.

    But the Ga Ga Cops are also looking for Galileo and if they get him first they will surely drag him before the Killer Queen and consign him to Oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye. Who is Galileo? Where is the Hairy One’s lost axe? Where is the place of living rock?

    Any way the wind blows…

  • The Henry Beaufort School allows the Wearing of Shorts

    Published 02/05/18

    The Henry Beaufort School listens to students and allows the wearing of shorts.

    The Henry Beaufort School ethos is built on mutual trust and respect between staff and students. It has listened carefully to the lobbying of the school by the students on the issue of wearing shorts during hot weather. The School felt that the students, especially boys were making a fair point about being comfortable in hot weather conditions. These shorts do have to be worn with all other items of school uniform but the School considers this an appropriate way to address the genuine concerns of the students. We are thrilled to report that we have been able to source an appropriate tailored short that can be worn by girls as well as boys.  The school will allow these specific tailored shortsto be worn in the second half of the summer term. 


    We look forward to welcoming the warmer weather!
