Also to be thanked are Mrs Nordan and the gymnastics coaches for running last weekend’s highly successful Midlands Independent
We are all looking forward to the new developments in school uniform for the autumn. If any parent needs to replace their son's jumper or daughter's cardigan this term, we are happy for the new ones to be bought and worn immediately, as this does not fundamentally change their overall appearance.
