WHAT OUR NEW YEAR 7s SAY This is the best school in the world! I was worried about starting secondary school but by the time I got here I knew lots of teachers and it wasn’t hard at all. I like it because we have lots of subjects and the school is really nice with lots of space to play. I like all the things we have already done this year and science was great! I have made lots of new friends. The camping was brilliant! It feels more grown up and I am already learning loads.
