Fantastic News - 15 September 2016

medal in the SB14 100 metre breast stroke last night in Rio.


School Fete

We have been notified by the Local Authority’s contractors that extensive scaffolding will be erected during the latter part of next week in connection with the urgent roofing repairs in the main reception area. There is a possibility that this work will extend into the weekend.

The Senior Leadership Team have therefore, regretfully, made the decision to cancel the School Fete which was due to take place on Saturday 17th September as a precautionary measure. It would be ill-advised to hold a public event at the same time that contractors and heavy vehicles are on site as it would be impossible to guarantee everyone’s safety and maintain a secure site.

We will not be re-scheduling a date for the Fete this autumn due to other school events (notably the forthcoming sponsored walk) and so our next Fete will take place in Summer 2017 and a date will be announced shortly.

Thank you to everyone who has made donations so far – these will be stored safely until our next event. We will proceed with the raffle as planned and will notify winners by telephone soon after 17th September. In the meantime, raffle tickets will continue to be available for purchase through the school office.
