Dear Parents/Carers

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that school will close for the summer break on Friday, 20 July at 1.15 pm, when the usual buses and taxis will arrive to take students home.  Friday, 20 July will be a non-uniform day and we are asking for a minimum contribution of £1.00, to go to the Year Charity, from those students wishing to come in their own clothes.

The school will re-open for all students on Wednesday, 5 September 2012.
