We are still hoping to run our chess club but as there were low numbers of interest, particularly for the infant group, we will need to wait to see if the tutor will be able to run classes. We will let anyone who has signed up to the classes as soon as possible.

As almost all of our classes are being run by outside groups, it is important that fees are paid as promptly as possible. Please send in money to the office as soon as possible and it will be passed on to the tutor. If you have any difficulties paying the fees, please talk to Simon, in confidence, and the school will try to make some arrangements.

If you haven’t signed up for a class yet, please call or drop into the office and if there are places available, we will be able to accommodate your child(ren).

We’re looking forward to a fantastic term ahead and I hope you all enjoy the wonderful variety of classes on offer.
