Parent and Carer Events...

Parent/Carer groups run on a cycle each year. We are responsive to the needs of our families .

If you would like one of our previous groups to run again (or have a suggestion for something new) please let us know! 

 We will send parents a letter and group call to let you know when the next event is.

 Ghyll Head Trip

In August 2014 and February 2016 a group of families and staff stayed at the outward bounds centre 'Ghyll Head' in the Lake District. The aims of the trip were to leave Manchester by planning a trip away that presented new challanges and the opportunity to get to know other families from school. 

 "This was the first opportunity we had to get away for a holiday for 7 years.  It was wonderful!  Everyone got along and supported each other.  We had such fun!"
