School News

Our school is so full of life that it’s hard to keep up with all the activity that goes on and all the many successes that our children enjoy.

At the end of each term we try to bring you up-to-date with the many activities in which our children have been engaged and general school news. You can find links to download these newsletters below. From time to time we also post individual items of news on this page – whether it’s details of a forthcoming event or other helpful school information.
