2. Staycation

What an amazing 3-day experience! I can honestly say that that was the best residential event I've ever been a part of. Our 3-day 'Staycation' was jam-packed with adrenaline-filled activities, team building, cooking (and cleaning), fog horn wake-up calls, and campfire antics. However, I have to say, it's not what you do it's who you do it with that matters! This Year 6 group is an absolute pleasure; what a cracking bunch of pupils!

Wow! We are blown away by all of your kind comments on the recent Sports Day and so far you’ve given us 5 out of 5 for satisfaction and enjoyment, thank you.


“Fantastic organisation of event. Lots of races. Focus on fun not necessarily winning.”


“It was lovely to see all of the staff really engaged with the kids and their teams.”


“Inclusive, relaxed. Great feel to the event. Happy children and teachers. Covid secure whilst still allowing children to be children. Bravo!”

11. Vertas Catering update

There has been some recent news coverage and so you may be aware of some issues currently regarding a national shortage of drivers.


Due to the national driver shortages, our suppliers are having issues both delivering to us and also receiving stock from manufacturers. Whilst we continue to work together to ensure that our service runs as smoothly as possible, this may result in some unforeseen menu changes.


As always your Head of Kitchen will work with you and keep you updated should any changes need to be made.
