• On Friday 26th October we celebrated School Spirit Day in aid of our sister school in Rumbek South Sudan.  It was a great day of celebration, and raised significant funds for a very worthy cause. There were competitions, musical recitals, dance performances and many fun activities.  There were whole school and year group and class events to mark the day.  Many thanks to the students and staff for engaging so fully and wholeheartedly in the celebrations on the day.

The students had the opportunity to speak to people involved in a variety of professions and found it a very informative and helpful evening. Many thanks to all those who contributed to this very successful event.
