Happy Easter & Thank you!

Thank you for all your hard work and support during the last term. This certainly didn't go the way that we had envisaged at Christmas, but we have managed to cope well with all the challenges and changes that we have faced. We should all be incredibly proud of how we have responded since Christmas, and of course we recognise the amazing efforts of our children. They are incredibly resilient. It has been a joy to see them all back at school and doing well. We would all like to wish you a happy and relaxing Easter.

The winner has not only applied herself fully to her remote learning following lockdown in January, but has demonstrated an excellent attitude towards all things at school.
