A Welcome message from our Principal.


Hello, we are very disappointed that, at the last moment, our plans for our transition evening where we meet all of our new and returning families have been changed due to the extended government covid guidelines.  This is where we will now post a recorded video of the transition evening, we will send out a message when it is ready for viewing.  Should you have any questions then please email them to Mr Gill on r.gill@tqea.org.uk
