Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

Congratulations to the England football team who have made it through to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990.  It is fair to say that when we planned the calendar for 2017-18 this possibility was not at the forefront of our minds.  We are now in a position where the very important Year 6 to 7 transition evening clashes with the England-Croatia match on Wednesday evening.  

We have not yet made a decision what to do about this, but I believe we will have to do something as so many of us will (quite rightly) want to be part of both occasions.  We will contact everyone involved whatever we decide to do.  Please keep an eye on this website for the latest news.

Thank you

Richard Bramley
