Head's Message



At a time of such uncertainty it has been amazing how the community has pulled together to fulfil our social obligations, to be kind and supportive and also to be creative about a different way of doing things. Students have adapted well to home study and I am grateful to you, their parents and carers, for your support. Please see the latest edition of our newsletter, which is devoted to some of the outstanding work they have been doing during lockdown.
On behalf of the school staff, I send my best wishes to you all.

Mrs J Veal
