Welcome back to a new school year! I hope you all had a relaxing summer break. Year 6 is an exciting year with so much to look forward to. Yes, we have to work hard to achieve our very best, but with that comes exciting experiences such as PGL next half term. I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and for us to work together as a team.
