Events in School


October 2015

This October we were very pleased to receive our bronze travel award from Modeshift Stars...we already have some ideas to start working towards our silver award! The Mayor came into school and presented us with a certificate and the award!

For harvest this year we sent all of our food to the Barnsley Food Bank with the help of Tesco!
