Good Afternoon Everyone!
Hope you are well and looking forward to your holidays at the end of what has been a very odd year! School reports were posted out yesterday as well as some social stories about returning to school so if you have any questions about either of these please get in touch via the contact page here or via the Facebook page.
Secondly, I have attached the arrangements for returning to school in September as well as posting them on the Facebook page, again, if you have any questions or queries please get in touch.
Finally, after what has been a very different school year can I just take the opportunity to thank you all for your tremendous support and well wishes that have come via the Facebook page and in telephone calls. We all really appreciate it.
Take Care and we’ll see you soon.
Well Y11 this certainly wasn’t the goodbye we had planned for you – but we all just wanted to say Goodbye and Good Luck. You are an amazing group of young people who we will miss very much. We will see you soon to give you a proper send off!

Alex, Karina and I have really enjoyed working with Bubble 2 over the last half term, but Birthday day was particularly fun.
Banner painting, scavenger hunting (for some very elusive bees and ants), hide and seek and eating cake. Really hard work! Thank you, Karina, for providing the excuse.
I am really pleased to see that this young man has been busy out and about, getting some fresh air and exercise. I understand that he has also enjoyed doing bits and pieces of school work: mostly the science, by the looks of the egg!
Well, Mrs Lee ended up celebrating her birthday with Bubble 2 at school in the end – it was just too hot and busy at the beach! Can you tell what part of school she is in?
Mrs Devlin wants to know if you recognise where she is. We went here in P4… Sculptures?
Mrs Howard went far, far away from everyone with her family – we went to Holy Island. Arthur was allowed to come because noone else was there. The chances were good that he would behave.
Well, what a lovely day out at his favourite place: Wallington Hall. I bet it felt good to cut loose…
Well done P7, for getting through Lockdown and then another well done for emerging again! Looking forward to seeing you back in the flesh in September.
Mrs Howard, Mrs Devlin, Mrs Lee.
