Welcome to Hendrix (R7) and Pieta (R3) who joined the Cotswold Learning Community this week.
Thank you to Peter Harper and the Senior School Team for organising and running the Senior School Duathlon on Wednesday. Thank you also to all parents and grandparents who attended the event and to all the people that assisted as marshals on the day. We could not have run this event without your support.
