Congratulations to Headley Park from Bristol for winning the UK’s School of the Month award!
This team has been brilliantly focused and has got the whole school stuck into Water Explorer. They have had lots going on these past couple of weeks. The team visited two separate local sites for the Fashionable Water Challenge and have created great tie dye t-shirts! They have also organised a potato growing contest which the whole school is taking part in. They are being very water wise and using rain water from their water butt to water the potatoes.
Well done Headley Park, we can’t wait to hear about what you get up to next.
Keep up the good work!
