  • Year 7 Christmas Fair - The students who took part in the LEAP project last year are putting on a very small Christmas Fair in the Learning Resource Centre for Year 7 during period 5.  If you have a child in Year 7 please give them some small change to help raise funds for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.
