Welcome back!  I hope you have all had a lovely summer break.

Welcome to all new students joining the academy.
I am pleased to announce that we have donated a total of £1497.02 to the Breast Care unit at the George Eliot hospital.  A huge thank you and well done to all students, parents and supporters of our show.
Another thank you to all of the people who donated raffle prizes, we do have a few unclaimed prizes.  If these aren’t claimed by the end of term we will hold a closed raffle and award the prizes to students of the academy.
