Dear Parents,

I can’t believe there are only 4 weeks left of this academic year............. And so much to do! As you will see from the diary information there are still lots of visits/experiences planned for the rest of the term- So still lots to look forward to!

Some staff are attending the TES Awards at the Grosvenor Garden Hotel on Friday evening as we have been shortlisted for 2 awards

Fingers crossed we are successful although being shortlisted is an accomplishment in itself.
