Newsletter
At the start of each term, a newsletter is produced to keep parents/carers updated with the latest information also including up and coming events and any fundraising activities. A copy of our latest newsletter is available on the link below.

Meals

We offer the facility of breakfast, a two course homemade cooked lunch prepared daily using fresh ingredients and a two course supper.  These are available depending on the fee package selected.  

 

If your child does not have the two course lunch you will need to provide a packed lunch and we ask that you bring this in a named box rather than in a bag, this enables us to easily store packed lunches in the fridge. Water is provided.
