RECENTLY 175 Year 6 students spent a day at the Causeway School in preparation for their start in September. They experienced a variety of lessons, including English, PE, Accelerated Learning and Science, and had the opportunity to meet staff and senior students.

The staff were really impressed with the students, who, in turn, seemed to have a very exciting and fun day. A group of senior students and Year 8 students helped throughout the day and were an absolute credit to the school.
