Thank you to our students, staff and families for working hard to create a safe and productive learning environment during our first half term back at school. We look forward to welcoming everyone back on Monday 2 November 2020.


A busy spooky week at Ace Club. The children have had lots of fun!  Have a great half term.


What a brilliant afternoon we had in Imperial class this afternoon. We completed our ‘Egg Drop Challenge’ putting the design and creation of our egg structures to the test! 🤩🥚🍳


Year 1 have had a fantastic day- they have had a pyjama party and been making autumn wreaths 🍂🍁


Taking in feedback and improving all the time.


Year 6 took inspiration from Martin Luther King and created their own poems after listening to his ‘I Have Dream’. Miss Leat and Miss Bacon were blown away and inspired by the words and feelings shared. Have a listen to some of those we heard...
