Donate £1 during tutor time on Friday for Save the Children. All other uniform must be worn.

“Thanks for all the work you’ve done on the All Together programme. I’m very happy to let you know that you’ve done a great job of demonstrating your work to reduce bullying and we’re awarding you All Together School GOLD status for 2018.”

Notice – Lift fault in Cartwright building

We have had a fault with the lift in our Cartwright building this morning which has caused the fire service to attend site.

Please be assured that the site is safe and no-one is at risk. Classes have been re-roomed until we are able to access the building again which we hope will be at some point later this morning.

There is no fire, no injuries and nothing to be concerned about.
