May I take this opportunity to thank our “Oscar” winners and their families for coming out in force last night to our inaugural Attainment Awards. I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
I would like to say a huge thank you to the brilliant staff at school and may I also thank the following people for their support and efforts in bringing the night together so well:
Mrs Stobbs, Mrs Cunliffe, Ms Blackburn, Ms Greenhalgh, Mr Duxbury, Mr Scott and Lucite International as well as our Governors and the staff at Oswaldtwistle Civic Theatre who were wonderful.
Head of Attainment
If you wish to order copies of the school photos that were sent home recently please make sure they have been handed into the main office by Monday morning. The company will be coming to collect the order during the day on Monday.
