September sees the mass migration of CLC girls from all over the world back to Cheltenham for the start of the autumn term. Silent for two months, the bustle of school life is in full swing once more, and everyone is glad to be back, whether it is their last year in SFC2 or their first in LC1.

The US Shutdown: Can Someone Explain What Just Happened?

Capitol, DC

By Megan Thresh

Early on Tuesday last week, a friend turned to me, and in a rather offhand manner mentioned, “You do realise that the US government shut down this morning, don’t you?” I was astounded. Why was I not woken up to this news with alarm bells, sirens, and police cars screeching down Overton Road? Surely the closure of the American government, managing one of the most influential nations in the world, would result in chaos; stock markets collapsing, riots, world-wide anarchy? As it transpired, although bewildering the situation may be, the shut down of the US government was not half as melodramatic as one might have anticipated.

Message from the Editor
Every CLCer has an inquisitive nose and an ear for gossip. This was proved true by a submission to Pegasus Pages before half term, following a couple of Sherlock articles. A generous good-willer, Ella Halliday, has responded to Becca’s request asking for anyone who had been at the scene of the crime and witnessed the Cumberbatch King in Cheltenham to step forward for the greater good of the CLC community.

Could Anyone Who Actually Saw Cumberbatch Please Step Forward?

The Wait. We have waited for so very long, yet we remain faithful until the end.

For those of you who know what I’m referring to, we are at an exciting point in time. To those who don’t, this probably sounds like the introduction to an epic fable of immense happiness, tragic love, and unending despair – which in some ways, it is.

Now you’re all wondering what this is all about, aren’t you?

Sherlclock Countdown to Season 3


By Becky Todd

As seen in Pegasus Pages, March 2013.

Fans of the BCC’s drama series Sherlock (starring Benedict Cumberbatch) will be pleased to hear that filming for the much anticipated third series began earlier last week. The latest series aired over a year ago, ending the finale with an impossible cliff hanger: Sherlock faking his own death. During the hiatus, fan theories for Sherlock’s survival have become steadily more wild and fantastical, ranging from scientifically-accurate to ludicrous.

By Jessica Cullimore

On 15th January, 2013, our beloved high street entertainment retailer HMV entered administration.

HMV was founded in 1921 with its first store on London’s Oxford Street. Ever since it has had a firm presence in almost every high street in the UK and this news splashed across the headlines brings uncertainty about the destiny of the humble British High Street.

The UK and the European Union – Doomed to Divorce?

Mr Crawford - Principal's Lecture

By Sasha Kirienko

The first Principal’s Lecture of 2013 took place in the PH on 19th January. Mr Charles Crawford, who has been an Ambassador three times for the UK, treated all UC5s and SFCs to a lecture entitled: ‘The UK and the European Union ­– Doomed to Divorce?’ From a man who has had an extensive career at the Foreign Office, and who is now a communications consultant, the highly entertaining lecture was stimulating and thought-provoking. Earlier that week, David Cameron had cancelled his speech on how he sees Britain in the EU. His address on Wednesday, 23rd January promised us a referendum upon the matter, if the Conservatives win the next election, and as a result, the EU has never been more topical in Britain than it is now.
