Celebrating successEVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

The aim of this section of the school website is to celebrate the success of the school generally, groups of students and possibly individual students.  Often the school’s success and recent achievements are celebrated within the school, in the school’s newsletter and in local and regional papers.
