Glee Performance

Glee club performed in Wednesday’s assembly. They performed their dance routines brilliantly (I think some members of the audience joined in too). Well done Glee club (and Miss Bish) you were amazing! You can watch their performance on our website.

Goodbye Andrea Orlandi

Yesterday we sadly had to say goodbye to our star Albion player Andrea. Andrea has been coming in to school regularly over the year as part of the Albion’s Seagulls Schools Partnership. Andrea has spent time in classes across the school taking part in a variety of activities. He also gave us a special wave at the Albion match that many of us attended. Andrea has been great to work with and we wish him lots of luck in the future and have no doubt that we will see many more fabulous goals from him! Thanks Andrea from everyone at Middle Street!
