Pupil Comment 2: July 2014

" Thank you for your support through out school and for being an amazing year leader and great role model."

Parental Comment 2: July 2014

I think one of the schools strap lines was "Together We Achieve", so take some of the credit! The last 2 years have seen change in my daughter I would not have believed. I'm immensely proud of how she has matured and developed, both at home and school!

Parental comment: July 2014

I can’t thank you enough for all the support you have given over the last 12 months, my daughter has been through a really tough time and struggled with the pressures of school, your support has been invaluable!

Pupil Comment: July 2014

"I'd like to tell you, you gave me some amazing advice on life and in my up and coming sporting career, you have influenced me to try my hardest in what ever I may be doing in the future wether it is through college or rugby!"
