Record Numbers Attend Open Morning
We are pleased to say that our 2010 Open Morning was a hugely successful event with a record number of families visiting the campus. The morning offered a chance for enquirers to learn more about the school with a number of presentations from Head Teachers and pupils. Senior teaching staff were on hand to answer any questions and the Clerk and Treasurer dispensed information packs about the School's bursaries.
