Whilst walking past the school yesterday I wondered why students, parents, staff and governors were dancing in the street - now I know why!

Mr Reader has been a huge asset to the school and he will be greatly missed. Good luck to him in his new appointment and huge respect for giving the govenors an extensive period in which to find a suitable replacement.
