Wow! We raised over £800 Well done everyone!
Thank you to everyone who came to our coffee morning today, it was lovely to see so many families coming together to help raise funds for this amazing charity.
It was a great community event – there were so many delicious cakes and buns donated – what a talented group of parents we have! Thank you so much to everyone who baked and/or came, it was wonderful to see both halls full of people.

SCHOOL COUNCIL VISIT TO LONDON - 10th September
On Monday 10th September 2018, the school council and Head boys and girls went to London to visit the Houses of Parliament. We caught a train from Leeds train station at 7:40am and arrived at Kings Cross station at 10:00am. Next we got a taxi to the Houses of Parliament.
When we arrived at Parliament, we all gazed at the river Thames. We entered Parliament and met our tour guide and walked up the stairs. We glanced at the decorative ceilings in awe as our tour guide directed us round the huge historic building. We wandered past the grand statues of famous faces. We got VIP access around the building and were told secrets about the Queen. We looked at the paintings of historic figures and entered the House of Lords and Commons. It was so exciting!
After our tour, we all did a workshop with Tracy Brabin where we imagined we had discovered a new island and needed some laws. There were 3 parties that had to make new laws and add how much tax the laws would cost. Then we voted for which party we wanted to be in charge of the island. After that, we counted the number of votes and the red team won. We then went outside to see famous landmarks like Big Ben and the London Eye before we got a taxi back to Kings Cross station and went back to Leeds.
The trip was very exciting and was many of the councillor's first time in London.
