Spaces are available for stall holders. If you or anyone you know is interested in having a stall at the fete please contact Mrs Hammacott, Business Manager in the Main Office to discuss further.

Lost Property

We are having large numbers of items of clothing being left in school. We do our very best to return all mislaid items to their owners however this is very difficult when items of clothing are not labelled.

Please ensure all uniform has your child’s name clearly written in it.
