School Uniform Shortages – Global Supply Problems

Posted on: July 22, 2022

Dear Parents, Carers and Students, You may have seen in the news and in turn, we have also been warned by our manufacturers, that many retailers are experiencing delays in goods getting into stores. Though we felt this was only going to be a problem last year, we are still subjected to a very similar situation this year round!

This will help ensure that…

Hop-on, Hop-off Bus Tour of London for Our New Students

Posted on: July 15, 2022

On Wednesday 13th July, our new students went on a Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour of London. It was an amazing opportunity for them to expand their knowledge of the capital and have some fun together. The highlights of the day were: taking the Uber Boat from Chelsea Harbour and marvelling at the historic bridges along the way, followed by hopping on the tour bus and taking a million photos of the world-famous London landmarks, walking through China Town and salivating at the delicious food, stopping for a well-deserved picnic at St James’s Park and last but not least waving at the Queen’s Guards outside the Buckingham Palace.  All the students had a wonderful time!
