    Our first full week back has been full of lots of new opportunities and engaging activities (and maybe some tired pupils (and teachers, too!). It’s been wonderful to see so many pupils enjoying our after school activities and fixtures as well as ‘getting stuck in’ to the learning in the classrooms.
