What says..

A lovable school with a warm and community feel that surprises in such a location. Magoo is energy, enthusiasm, loquacity and huge fun in pin stripes. He is not out to process children for any particular school but to ensure his school maintains the values, atmosphere and friendliness that make a sound learning environment for all.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
