Many thanks to Sara Clegg and all her family and friends for the very kind donation to the school.

Sara, our Head Girl has recently celebrated her 18th birthday and decided that instead of gifts from family and friends, she wanted donations instead to be given to the school.

We were delighted to receive a cheque for £665 which will be used to buy branded sports wear for pupils taking part in sporting events, representing the school.

This was a very kind gesture fro Sarah and her family.
We hope you had a very happy birthday Sara.
