Telephone Systems

BSSpostlogoDear Parents/Carers

It may well be that you have tried to contact school over the last two weeks by telephone.  Unfortunately, we are experiencing severe problems with our phone lines.  Although we have our number diverted to a mobile phone in reception, there may still be a problem getting through to the school. As you can imagine we are liaising constantly with BT and, in the interim, I request kindly, that if you are unable to get through, please email Elaine Neacy, PA to Headteacher at with any urgent messages you may have and she will forward them on to the appropriate person and ask them to contact you.
I  will update you on this as soon as we get a solution.

Kind regards
Paul Woods

The family run activity centre gave us rural experiences such as crabbing and speed boat rides, as well as some local knowledge from the villages of Appledore and Westward Ho!. Only a lucky few were able to catch the crabs, although we now know how to tell a female from a male and which colour crabs we should eat (orange!).
