"At the end of the first week back at school, I am pleased to see both children and staff happy and settled. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Daubney, Mrs Sweetnam and Mr Wilson for organising and leading a very successful ski trip to Italy in December. We were delighted to welcome Clare Schmidt from King’s School, Taunton. Clare ran excellent art workshops for some of the Year 7 and 8 pupils during her time here."
