Welcome back to all our students. We hope that you all had a good half term break and that everyone is well rested and ready for a busy half term. The trips to Russia, Florence and Paris over the break all went well and were enjoyed by all.We have received some wonderful compliments and feedback about the four wonderful performances of Oliver that took place before half term. One parent said “We just wanted to say how amazing we thought the show was; the props, costumes, music and the performers we really enjoyed coming to see it. Friends and family come to see the show they could not believe how professional and talented the students are. We are so proud of our son and we truly feel blessed to have the performing arts in our school. Congratulations to the students and staff on their hard work and inspiring performances.” We have attached some photographs below for you to enjoy.
