Red White & Blue Day
Well done to those students who participated fully in the recent Red, White and Blue non uniform day on Friday. This was an opportunity for students and staff to recognise sixty years of service given by one person to her country. A remarkable achievement.
Although students were not required to contribute to a charity on this occasion many did and the proceeds were given to the Alzheimer’s Society. P Bowden

On Tuesday 12th June year 8 will be taking part in 'It's A Knockout'. The event will take place in school and Year 8 students will be in non uniform for the day (clothes that they can get wet/foam covered). Students should wear suitable clothing for the weather and if the weather is hot they should be protected with sun block from home. Students will also need to bring a change of clothes for the end of the day. Students are advised not to wear any jewellery or have their mobile phones, etc on them in case they are damaged or lost. School will not be held responsible if students ignore these instructions and items are lost or damaged. Thank you for your continued support. Mrs Casemore
