After a short week after the break, we now embark on a full week of learning and activities.
Firstly, we would like to tell you that we have a record number of children signing up for next September. Several of our classes for next year are already full. We are looking forward to having a lovely new intake to boost our numbers. Thank you for spreading the word about what is special about our school- your word-of-mouth and our new publicity campaign are working beautifully.
