We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our assembly and seeing the performance prepared by staff and learners.


If you would like to buy your son/daughter’s school photo please could you complete the form sent out last week and send this in with the money.

If you do not wish to buy the photo please just return the proof to the school by Tuesday 21st October.

The Juniors travelling café will be touring the school on the afternoon of Thursday 23rd. October. The learners will be able to make a choice of fruit scones with jam or cheese scones. These will be served either warm or cold. There will be a charge of 50p each and all proceeds will go to Children in Need. Gluten free cheese option will be available.


Just to say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored me and wished me well for the run on Sunday. It was such a fantastic experience, running past the sites of London with everybody shouting and cheering.

I managed to complete the half marathon in 1 hour and 53 minutes, which I was really pleased with. It was a great atmosphere and well worth all the effort!

So far I have raised just under £500 for the Panathlon Foundation. If you would still like to make a donation there is still time,  just type in the link below which will take you to my just giving page. 

Also if you would like to see how the rest of the Panathlon team got on and how much the team raised please visit
