“Growing together in mind, body and spirit”

A key part of our motto is ‘growing together’ and the fantastic community we live in. This was epitomised by our hard working PTA on Friday who led another wonderful Fayre. Well done and thank you to them – and thank you to all of you that came to support it. More here: Christmas Fayre
