The Fourth Form had a fantastic few days away on their Camp in the Black Mountains, and despite being a little weary, they all arrived back in good spirits. The CCF head off today for their week down in Devon, and the Upper 6th are still ploughing their way through their last few exams.

With just one week to go, one looks back at the year just gone and wonder where the time has gone. I have no doubt that our Overseas Parents are looking forward to having their children back home. It has been a year packed with so many successes, of which we are very proud.
