We’ve had an excellent response to the launch of our new website with over 3,500 visits from the UK and Europe, and from as far away as New Zealand and Australia. We’ve received lots of positive comments too.
I’ve been itching to press ‘live’ for months as I have seen the site building. It’s a beautifully designed reflection of our culture and ambition. Plaudits to Crunch Creative and Nick Jackson for their excellent work.
Also producing excellent work is Year 9 student Yasin Soliman who has designed a new display for our screen in Reception. Visitors can now see our latest tweets and keep up to date with the all-important House competition.
Shining Stars Partnership
At the beginning of this week we welcomed back Mr Butcher and Mrs Delve who travelled to our partner school, Shining Stars, in Nepal over half term.
There are just a few places left at our 11+ Familiarisation Session which we are providing free of charge this year. Here’s a reminder of the rationale and intended outcomes.
The session is for boys in Year 5 and if you would like your son to take part please call our reception team on 01752 208787.
Our open evening this year will be held on Wednesday 2 July at 6.00pm.
