Community Links

Our school is at the heart of our community. We encourage our children to take part in community activities and to give back to their town. They are encouraged to be part of the rich tapestry of events and occasions throughout the year in our Cotswold Market Town and to feel that they are valued as important members of the community. We teach them to give to others without receiving back . Examples of our community involvement are shown below.
