School concert for children who have instrument lessons in school



What a wonderful afternoon of singing and flag parading in our own Olympic Opening Ceremony ahead of the Sports Days next week.

May Celebration

What a fantastic afternoon we’ve had celebrating May Day. As always, this celebration is held in memory of James Eadie, a pupil who sadly died. The celebration was started when we planted a tree in his memory and has been an Air Balloon tradition ever since. It is always a special day for those of us who remember him fondly and one that we hope will continue for many year to come.

We saw some wonderful dancing and heard beautiful singing this afternoon. Well done to all of the children for performing so well and thanks to all the parents, carers and relatives who came to watch and support them. We are very thankful that the sun shone.

Once again it was a really special afternoon and one of the rare occasions that we see the whole school together.

Royal Visit to Kingswood

The Princess Royal has been in Kingswood, visiting Cossham Birth Centre and then the headquarters of ERIC, the Children’s Bowel and Bladder Charity in Britannia Road. Some of our children were there… read the story and see the pictures

Lord Mayor’s Visit

The Lord Mayor, Claire Campion-Smith came to visit on Wednesday. She presented the Green For Good Schools Award to Mrs Lambert and her Green Team. The award itself is a very beautiful creation and is now hanging proudly outside my office.

The Lord Mayor then led an assembly for Years 5 and 6. She talked very proudly of the 800 years of Bristol Mayors and the fact that Bristol has two Mayors, ceremonial and elected. She told the children how she is trying to get more children and girls especially involved in Science, Technology and Maths. She then talked about her ceremonial robes, saying that she had been presented with the most uncomfortable hat in the world. She also explained that her chain was solid gold and joked that if she fell in the harbour everyone would be more interested in saving the chain than her!

After many children had tried on ‘the hat’ she toured the new build, because she last visited when the coal mines were being filled, prior to the footings being laid. All in all it was a lovely experience and she clearly enjoyed the children and seeing the school.
