Year 7 students help fund-raise for Year 11 prom!

On Friday 31 March 2017, Edie-Mae Gartshore and Charlotte Shaw generously gave up their lunchtime to help raise money for our upcoming Year 11 prom! The girls did the year group proud and encouraged many students to participate in the Easter inspired ‘guess the number of eggs in the jar!’. Their hard-work helped to raise a significant amount to be put towards the prom and I’m sure that the two winners enjoyed their prize!

Thank you for your help and well done girls!
(Mrs S Dyer, Head of Year 7)
