Congratulations to our new Prefects! They have positions of responsibility within our school community and are important role models. I look forward to working with them through the year ahead.


Once again this year we are proud to be using the No Outsiders programme to help teach equality, diversity and inclusion.


What a beautiful day to sit and sketch trees with the village. Thank you to all in the community who allowed us to sit and admire their gardens.
