PE Silver Award

Over the last year we have been successful in increasing participation in sports not only for training but also for competitions.  We have also achieved considerable success in these competitions.   This has been facilitated largely by Mr Bailey who often has given up his own time to attend events.  Also many other members of staff…

Camp: Day 2

The children are all OK and have eaten a hearty breakfast, fuelled ready for an action packed day.  Activities today include: low ropes and archery.  Let’s hope the weather improves for them a little, and that we get some sunshine from tomorrow for when I join them!
