Miss Thomas

After 10 years of working at our school and 2 years at the Infant and Nursery school, Miss Thomas is moving on to pastures new.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish Miss Thomas well for the future and thank her for all the help and support she has given the children at the school over the past 12 years.

Miggie Hillson

It is with sad news that Miggie Hillson, our Chair of Governors, is stepping down at the Business Meeting in September.  On behalf of the school’s Governing Body I would like to thank Miggie for her years of service, ensuring that the children in our school get the education they are entitled to and deserve.  We wish Miggie well for the future.
