Action-packed end of term

A busy final week with lessons, sports day, and end of term activities. Block 5 returned on Monday for their AS induction lessons and those Block 5s who are leaving us worked on their Legacy Project which involved constructing benches, and sanding, varnishing and painting the arms with their own designs to personalise them, before placing them around the estate for the community to enjoy.

Congratulations to the winners: sports teachers Alan Wright and Kevin Boniface.View photos.
