 26th January 2017 until 3rd February 2017:

We launched our ‘Read Around The World’ group reading competition!

For every ten minutes a student read a book their group would travel 500 miles on a map – Green Group travelled the furthest, closely followed by Blue Group….well done!!


25th January 2017:

We held our regular ‘Drop Everything And Read’ session. Everyone on the site dropped what they were doing and read for 10 minutes.

8th December 2016:

We held a very successful Christmas Fayre and opened our new library!

Students, parents and staff enjoyed lots of delights such as:

Turkey and stuffing sandwiches

Mulled Wine (non alcoholic!)

Christmas Cake

Book Sale

Clothes stall

A BIG thank you to all those who attended – we raised lots for The Teenage Cancer Trust!


Ms Binns worked very hard to transform our old ICT suite into a fantastic library! The ribbon to open this great resource was cut during the Christmas Fayre by Ms Binns and Mr Jacques.


30th September 2016:

We raised £100 from holding a Macmillan Coffee Morning! Thank you to those staff who contributed cakes to a very successful morning
