Harvest Donations

Braintree Foodbank were thrilled with the enormous donation of food that the school collected. The School Council enjoyed loading their van! Thank you for your generosity.


We are incredibly proud to have received two sports awards this term. The first was 'Braintree District Sports School of the Year'. We were very proud to receive this award for the second time. We also received a Highly Commended in the Essex 'Education Champion of the Year' Award. This means we got down to the final 3 schools in the whole of the county. What an amazing achievement!! Huge well done to Mrs Smith Mrs Young & Mr Power!!
