Queen’s Visit to Brighton

We are very pleased and excited to tell you that Year 5 and Year 6 will be waving to the Queen during the Queen’s visit to Brighton on Thursday 8th March. The children have a place allocated to them and their teachers in New Road where the Queen and Prince Phillip will be passing through. Mr Collins and I will also be accompanying the older members of the School Council to a musical recital at the Theatre Royal, which the Queen will be attending before her walkabout in New Road.

Scrooge DVD Now Available

Great news! We have on sale copies of DVDs of the Middle Street Christmas production of Scrooge. It’s a fantastic film of the show and well worth the £5 it’s on sale at. If you would like a copy of the DVD please place your order at the school office. Thanks to Brett Fancy for all his hard work and time producing the DVD.
