Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

It is hard to believe that we have come to the end of the first half term of the year. The last seven weeks have been filled with excellent experiences and amazing achievements. If this is what our pupils can accomplish is such a short amount of time, I personally can’t wait for the rest of the school year.
