Therapy Dog Visit

Primary classes have been lucky enough to spend time with Honey, a Therapy Dog, this term. Honey loves to be stroked, cuddled and read to and she is a very calming influence on the children when they spend time with her and she is a very welcome addition to the school.

Visit from Alex Burghart MP

It was a pleasure to have a visit from Alex Burghart MP. He joined pupils in classes and observed lessons. Mr Burghart expressed his support for the Endeavour School's application to convert to academy status and offered help in the process if necessary. He also showed approval of the possibility, in principle, for a future post-16 provision at the Endeavour School.
