What says..

Our allocated guides were, not surprisingly, slightly reluctant to leave a science class in which they were planning sports events taking account of the conditions of planets other than the earth. However they waxed lyrical over the pet’s corner, were warmly welcomed by Sister Gill and clearly loved every bit of the school. Art has a huge and impressive building bursting with stunning work in every medium and hugely talented and enthusiastic staff. Very professional looking fabric design work on display as well as fascinating mixed media landscape work and spectacular studies based on work done in the cathedral....
