The Year 5 children spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Aylmerton Field Study Centre. From studying the different stages of the River Glaven, to going on Monster Hunts, the children were an absolute delight and represented the school brilliantly. We are already looking forward to Aylmerton 2021!

Future messages will come as a notification on the Parentmail app, as an email and will also appear on the school website.
