Many thanks to all the parents, staff and students who supported our PTFA fund-raising bingo night before Easter, we had 50 playing members in all with intermittent ‘duck quacking’ throughout the evening, which endlessly amused our fabulous bingo callers, Liam Bellchambers and Mackenzie Pengelly.

We are delighted to announce that we raised £200 for the Performing Arts department which we hope will help pay for essential props for the forth-coming Grease performance.

Thanks also to all who donated Easter eggs and to Chelsea Smart, Year 12, for providing delicious home-made buns and biscuits. The evening was a success and we aim to put a similar event on again in the next academic year.

If anyone is interested in becoming involved in the PTFA we are always looking for new, keen members. Please contact me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out more.
