Not only do we have an excellent track record when it comes to academic progress, we have also gained an enviable reputation when it comes to sporting achievement.

    Just a bit of advance warning that we have three coaches arriving first thing tomorrow, Wednesday 13th, due to swimming and the year 1 trip. If you can avoid driving up Parker road between 8am and 9 that would be very helpful.

    Message to Reception parents. Please can you help us as we are short of adults to walk with the children to the Library. If we don’t get enough volunteers unfortunately we will have to cancel this trip. If you can help please let a member of the office staff know.

    Proud to be at the Battle of Britain service, in Grays. It was great to see young people taking a lead in giving thanks to "the Few." Good to speak with the head of @BCA_Thurrock, Mark Jones who had a career in the RAF before teaching and plays a leading role with our Air Cadets. https://t.co/od56U9xho6

    New Class Names I am aware that the new class names, using the Year group followed by the teacher’s initials may have caused some confusion. Below is a map showing the layout of the school along with the new class names. We are also in the process of changing the external signs. https://t.co/Atp492Z79X

    I forgot to share with parents that we are having quite a lot of work done in the school at the moment. The school is being completely re-wired, in addition to which new radiators and pipe work are being installed. As you will recall the boilers were replaced only 2 yrs ago.
