A very warm welcome to a host of wonderful new teaching staff that has joined us in various parts of the school:

The boys have already had a great week with their new teachers.
Not a new starter as such, but in a new role, is Mr Jones who is known to some of you as our very talented peripatetic percussions teacher. You might recognise him from the virtual Mamma Mia rendition with the percussions ensemble last year.
