News
Recently we were visited by the chairperson of Tewkesbury Rotary Club, Anne Bartholomew, who presented Mrs Arnold with a cheque for £820. The donation was for more reading books in Foundation and KS1. Mrs Arnold is passionate about encouraging the younger children to develop good reading habits early on so that they maintain a life-long passion for reading. Pictured Anne Bartholomew and Mrs Arnold. We are very grateful to The Rotary Club.
