School Lottery

Last week’s winner was Mrs Groves.

This draw is open to everyone all over the country; it would be wonderful if you could ask friends or family if they would like to join. As well as a guaranteed weekly school winner, there is also a chance of winning £25000 in the national draw every week. The more tickets we sell, the higher the prize money. If you have not yet bought your ticket, or your debit card payment has finished, the link to register is
For anyone joining this term there is a chance to win a family ticket to Warner Brothers, Harry Potter Studio’s Tour.
Please note, as this has turned out to be a major fundraiser in our school year, we have decided not to ask for the school funds anymore. Thank you.


Christmas Raffle

Raffle tickets have been sent home; each family have been given 4 books. Tickets are 50p each or £2.50 per book. Due to the fantastic response more raffle tickets have been ordered, we will send a text when they are in school if you feel you are able to sell more. There are some fantastic prizes available, a list of the prizes so far is coming home with this letter. The draw will take place at the film night on 20th December. Thank you
