Peter Pan flew into Club this Summer! The running theme throughout the summer was J M Barrie’s famous story.

It’s been a couple of months since my last post – no news is good news? Well, there hasn’t been a great deal to talk about really.

Good luck Hugh!Read More Hugh approaching the North Yorks Moors

At the end of last month we were inspected by a nice lady from Ofsted. It is something we’ve been expecting, but it came as a shock none-the-less, especially as she arrived at 9 o’clock in the morning, the day after a Bank Holiday weekend! Anyway, after a day spent seeing how we do things…Read More Ofsted rate us GOOD
