School Library

Our new £180,000 library is at the heart of our school. All pupils borrow books. The library opening by Dr Gervase Phinn in April 2016 was a wonderful celebratory event.

I hope I have included everyone. My apologies if I have left someone out.

Thank you for your delightful letters. It was such a lovely surprise on a wet and windy day in Yorkshire to receive them. Your writing is SO GOOD! It is neat, accurate and entertaining. I can honestly say that I have never received such impressive letters. Indeed on the course for teachers which I directed last week I was showing them to those who attended to see the excellent standard children can achieve.

I am pleased you enjoyed my visit. I had a memorable time with you all and was so impressed with your new library. Everyone was very warm and receptive and I loved the music.

Thank you for getting in touch and good luck with your own writing.

With best wishes
Yours sincerely
Gervase Phinn
