Extra-Curricular

One of the perks of being a small school is the flexibility to enhance our children's learning experience  by adapting our planning at very short notice.  For example, a visit to the Anstey alpacas, Buntingford library, Shuttleworth museum, the Cambridge computing museum and botanical gardens ... to name but a few.  We have 3 staff who are qualified to drive the minibus so the possibilities are endless! We are visited by peripatetic teachers for LAMDA drama coaching, piano, violin and ukulele.
