It is with sadness that we say goodbye to Miss McIntyre on Friday 20th December. We wish Miss McIntyre well for her future and thank her for her hard work and support through the Autumn Term. We are however, very happy to welcome Miss Davis to our teaching team from January 2020 and we know that she will make a positive contribution to our school with enthusiasm and core values of ‘Community. Compassion and Friendship’.
