Book Week was, as always, the highlight of Term 2. The students had a great time celebrating books and reading for pleasure. 

Everywhere you looked there was something exciting and amazing to see whether this was book themed lessons, Secondary students reading to primary, book tasting and we even had The Twits make an appearance on Friday.

Staff Winners


The Secondary Maths team impressed again this year. Last year’s BFG theme was exchanged for what we thought was an Alice in wonderland theme. However, when the department stood in the correct order ....we had the numbers of PI! Very clever and great team spirit again!

Ms Giles – Head of History and Secondary School production Costume designer.


Last year, Ms Giles impressed as the Trunchbull from Roald Dahl’s Matilda but this year students were astonished to be taught by Effie Trinket – the fashionable Capitol-born chaperone from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins!
