Please refer to the School Calendar before you book a holiday.
The holidays are also listed on the Derbyshire County Council website.

Our School library is so much more than a place for books so we call it the Learning Resources Centre (LRC). We are open daily and have over 7000 items for students to use.

To help with homework we run an after-school Homework Club every day except Friday from 3:00pm until 4:25pm.
