New Accommodation for Senior Classes

Our new accommodation for our senior classes is almost finished and is looking good already! We are waiting on the electricity connection and possibly a water connection also. Due to this it will be mid Nov when we move in, probably Mon 16th Nov. We are grateful to the Rugby & Mary’s Clubs for renting us rooms in the meantime. Thank you for your patience with multiple site drop off/pick ups. We will close for 1 week for Halloween Break today.

Building Works

Building works on Farrells Warehouse opposite school will begin soon. When finished it will be our Senior School of 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes. In the short term it will be a building site. From Mon 21st Sept please drop/collect all pupils on the our Junior School side of the road. There will be No Parking in Farrells yard / East Coast Alloys as it is unsafe to have pupils on a building site. Thank you for your cooperation.

Thank you for your co-operation with school drop off/pick up times. Pupils have all settled in & now know where they need to go. We do not need to have the staggered times any more. Just make sure pupils know to walk in apart from others to their classes. Staff will continue to collect pupils from & return to the gate. Those who have more than one drop off/pick up just continue to do your best. We understand it takes time to travel between sites.
