St Joan of Arc Secondary School Short Term Student Visit

This week we have enjoyed having a group of 11 boys and their teachers from Hong Kong, St Joan of Arc Secondary School, visiting our school.
The boys have had a wonderful time with their ESOL lessons and going to mainstream class with their kiwi buddies.

Goodbye and Best Wishes to our Leavers

We are sad to say goodbye to our Leavers at the end of this term. We wish them all the best for their future. They have certainly matured into young men that all their family and friends can be proud of.
