Thanks to everyone who has sent us feedback on the Leavers’ hoodies – it’s great to hear that they are being enjoyed.

Sending a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who ‘paid it forward’ by making a donation to help us cover the cost of ensuring that every Year 6 who wanted a hoodie was able to get one. We really appreciate your help in making that happen.
