Welcome Back ! Summer term 2013

Dear Parents, Guardians & Pupils,

Welcome back to our Summer Term! We have another busy term ahead of us with lots of ISTD and RAD exams.

Well, we  finished last term on a high with a fantastic performance of ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ from our Theatre Group with amazing performances from all the pupils – well done and a massive thank you to Sarah for all her hard work!

Easter School was a great success with the amazing Tim Noble running an exhausting but exhilarating week!  We are now in talks with Tim to run a pilot for Sky television with our Theatre Group – Exciting times ahead.

I can’t believe we are already in our summer term!  Just think, two more terms and we start rehearsing for our summer show.  The staff have already started planning it looks set to be our best one yet!!!

I am also happy to announce the return of Miss Vikki.  I know you have all missed her!

As always, I look forward to seeing you all and working with the children.

See you all on Saturday,
Becky-Ann Camp
