Dear Parents and Carers

This week saw the official opening of the new block, by former student and professional actor George Banks. The opening was attended by representatives from Hertfordshire County Council, Marlowe’s Construction Company and Synergy, our project management company. The student work on display was outstanding and was commented on by all. 

The Battlefields trip to Ypres trip last weekend was very successful and was enjoyed by all who attended. The students were able to study the landscape first hand and gain a true understanding of how difficult combat was over such a flat terrain. They also had the opportunity to attend the Menin Gate ceremony, and listen to the Last Post which is played every evening.
