This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

The Hall's alive with the Sound of Music

Year Six performed 'The Sound of Music' to a packed School Hall last Wednesday evening. Despite some last minute adjustments due to a 'no show', a strong cast held the production together and after 90 minutes the 'curtain came down' to rapturous applause!

Putting on a major show like this in such a short time was no mean feat and great credit goes to Mrs Saunders, Miss McKune, Miss Bekir and the children - who did a fabulous job of learning their lines in only a fortnight.  All the children were wonderful, but special mention goes to Martya and Chloe (who split the lead role of Maria), to Cameron, as Max (who was on stage throughout and held the whole thing together); to Chukwumah and Nathaniel (as Captain von Trapp), Callie and Julia (as the Baroness), Isabelle as Liesl and Siobhan as Mother Superior.

The impromptu 'So Long, Farewell' at the end was a special treat with all the kids 'letting go' and showing what a wonderful joint endeavour the production has clearly been, an opportunity to let off steam after the intense SATs tests of only a few weeks ago.

Well done all - very entertaining!
