Piano going to a good home

Good afternoon, 

A member of the public has a piano that is free to a good home and will be delivered free in Glossop. We already have a piano in school and it would be shame if nobody can make good use of it. 

If you are interested, please contact our office and we will put you in contact with the person. This will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Year 6 Leavers Hoodies

I know we have only just started the year and leaving for High School is the last thing on your mind. However, the earlier we can get the orders in, the better deal on price. 
 

The colour will be the same but different to the PE hoodie with the school logo on the front and all the pupils names on the back. 

The year 6  leavers will be allowed to wear the hoodies in the last half term. 

If you are interested, please fill out the form below. We don’t have a firm price yet as we need numbers first. I expect the price to be between £15 and £25. 

We will get sizes at a later date.

Hoodies for PE

Good afternoon, 

I hope you are well and enjoying the sunshine. 

I have contacted Bulldog fashion, who supply our school jumpers and they are going to produce a navy hoodie for our PE days.  This will be available with the logo, all the classes will be navy and they will be available from early October. 

These are purely optional  but can only be worn on the days that the pupils have PE.
