Climate Change Protest

Pupils in school today are supporting the Climate Change Protest and will be leading eco-friendly changes in school including: cutting down on our use of plastic; less printing and paper waste - and, encouraging recycling. We would like to promote the use of park and ride and the reduction of carbon emissions around our school site by walking to school.


Half-term is upon us and a much deserved rest for all is most welcome! We are especially proud of our pupils in the Lower School who have taken part in our recent 'Quizzes' and, to our Year 11 pupils who are currently doing their examinations.
