We are ninety!
We are delighted to celebrate our 90th birthday on Tuesday 7th January. The school first opened its doors on the 7th January 1924.   
To start the celebrations we will be launching this anniversary with a special assembly.  Staff will be leading the assembly at 9am on Tuesday 7th January – parents are most welcome to attend.  Over the week we will immerse the children in art, literature and knowledge of their chosen decade and they will be creating work for our new display frames across the school.  They will learn about what it was like to be a child in their chosen decade.
On Friday 10th January we are asking children to come dressed up as a child or dress in the fashion from their chosen decade (see table below).
