Reading Recommendation from Mrs Howell, Librarian
The Art of Fairness by David Bodanis
This is an amazing book – full of hope about humanity and how being kind doesn’t prevent you from achieving great things.
How to be Me by Cath Howe
Lucas is all alone. Since his mum died, Lucas and his dad don’t seem to understand each other at all. And Lucas is dreading the summer drama club that his dad has signed him up for.
But the people Lucas meets at the club force him to open up and start talking. Can his new-found friends teach Lucas how to be himself?

Questions from students:
How quickly do you make friends?
Everyone is in the same boat and everyone is really friendly. So don’t worry about friends, it’ll come easily!
What facilities are there?
We have a 3-storey language block as well as a Music Block with a state of the art of recording studio. There is a brand-new sports centre and teaching block, which opened in September 2021. We even have a swimming pool!
What are the teachers like?
The teachers are really nice and supportive and help lots. They guide you not only within the subject, but also extra-curricular. They encourage you to follow your passions and are always there if you need anything.
