Latest News:

Wise Owl brought their stunning birds of prey in to visit some of our year 7 students and they were AMAZING!

They rely on the income from school visits, prison visits, village fetes etc to allow them to carry on with their invaluable work, rescuing and caring for injured and abandoned birds, so if you know any other schools or organisations who might enjoy this, please pass on their details!


Our students were, as ever, a joy (although they were very, very excited) and our human visitors commented on how polite, pleasant and enthusiastic they were. Thanks to all staff who supported, especially to Miss Beirne (who actually appeared to cry with joy on more than one occasion) and to Maths for letting us keep hold of some students during their lesson.
