This is looking closer to the £7500 mark now! WOW. Huge thank you to our PTA, parents and staff that actively worked so hard together to achieve this from our Christmas Fair. What a community!


Today some pupils took part in some cooking! We were inspired by Omari McQueen - a 14 year old vegan chef / entrepreneur! We made tropical rocky roads and I think from the chocolatey smiles it’s safe to say we had a fabulous morning!


Today was full of fun, laughter and history! We hosted some special guests who engaged the whole school in celebrating black history through exploration of music, dance and African stories! Assemblies, workshops and playground music made today busy and brilliant!


Year 5 had the best day today at the - their science this half term has been based on Space and today’s trip help bring their learning to life beyond the classroom! They were fascinated by the size of the rockets they saw!


We are so proud to celebrate black history through our curriculum all year round, but we also know how important it is to inspire pupils further at this important time in our calendars. We know the children are going to have immersive, authentic learning experiences!


We are genuinely the luckiest school to have such an incredible team of teaching assistants and 1:1 support assistants! These guys work relentlessly to support our students and give the highest level of pastoral care! we showered them in love at a special breakfast in the library


Harvest is here! For those that can, we are kindly asking for donations this week to support others in our local community. We want to work together to send off a range of food and non- food items to the Bromley Living Well Food Bank.


Year 3 got further immersed in the learning about the Stone Age with their wow day workshop! They will write a recount about their learning and experiences from our special visitors!


Today we were busy evaluating our Year 6 leadership applications and holding interviews for Heads of School! We have been blown away by the quality of applications this year - written with passion, enthusiasm and a clear sense of pride for being a member of our school community!


Tonight our teachers met up with colleagues from and to talk all things writing! Across the 3 schools there is a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion for teaching and learning.
