House Teams

Since September we have had an overhaul of the House Teams as there was an inbalance of pupil numbers. We have decided to amend the teams so each house consists of an equal and fair mixture of children. We managed to keep family members in the same house teams so that events, such as Sports Day, are run more smoothly with no divide in support. 

Alongside this we are further developing the role of House Captains and have also introduced Sports Captains as well. Below are the pupils taking on these roles:


House Captain - Ryan & Grace

Sports Captain -Poppy & Jonathon


House Captain - Megan & Spencer

Sports Captain William & Kalli


House Captain - Jack & Sophie

Sports Captain - Elizabeth & Travis


House Captain - Amy & Finley

Sports Captain - Cecilia & Jacob 

Parents' Evening

Next week it is parents' evening. Please make sure you visit the Pavilion to sign up for a time on Wednesday or Thursday.

Disco Success

Well done to STARs for another fantastic disco enjoyed by all the children! In total the disco and non-uniform day raised an amazing £297. The children were very well behaved and Daniel did a wonderful job with the music. Thank you to all who were involved leading up to and on the day.
