Children's University -

It was fantastic to see so many of our pupils at the Children's University Graduation at The University of Bolton. The children are rewarded for their extra hours at clubs and activities outside of the school day. Thank you to Mrs Lowe for taking the children. 

Summer Activities

 We have held a range of activities in school for all pupils. Children have done orienteering, baking, den making, film club day, archery and other sports. We have had a family day out at Gulliver's World with 140 of our families and visited Jump Xtreme. One of the highlights of the holidays was making our very own freshly grown produce into carrot fritters. They were fresh and delicious! 

Summer Fair 2017 - A big thanks to everyone who took part and came along to our summer fair!

ESOL Lessons

ESOL Lessons for parents take place on Tuesday mornings in the Community Room. Children come into the lessons to make it a family learning session. The lessons are designed so that parents can have more knowledge of life in the classroom and be more confident in helping their children at home. Feedback is very good and all parents are welcome. Thank you to the College for all of their help and support in making this such a positive experience for families.
