  • Drama Club - Aladdin Trouble

    As you know, some of the children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) have been attending the Drama Club each Monday with Miss Robinson and Miss Deakin, preparing for a performance of Aladdin.


    It is with regret that we have to inform you that due to staffing changes, the performance will not be able to go ahead in July as originally planned. The amount of work still to be covered in preparing for the performance is not achievable in the timescale available.


    This will mean that there will no longer be a Drama Club
