Looking After Our Mental Health

As a follow up to our blog last week about Children’s Mental Health Week, our blog compiler and science teacher extraordinaire Soraiya Humby spoke to our pastoral tutor Mrs Bullock to find out about some suggestions for looking after ourselves.

Oh no he didn't... Oh yes he did!

Our Net School students are busy both in and out of school.
