PTA Valentines Disco: Thanks to all who helped make it a success. Enjoy the half term break. :                      


We are a school that likes to celebrate success – at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives. An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture involving everyone- children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership hoping that we can provide the best for every child.

Christmas with Great Wood Choir
This Christmas, we listened some lovely singing by the choir and learned about their visits to residential homes on the promenade. Not only had the residents welcomed the visit from school pupils but it was also a really touching experience for the visitors. Thanks to Mr Hudson for training the choir.
