A Level Results Day

Howdy peeps, If you or someone you know has A/S or A level results today, please accept my congratulations. 🎉🎊👏🙌👨‍🎓👩‍🎓 I've heard a lot of GCSE and A level students being fearful of not getting the grades they need (understandable given the news in Scotland the last few days), but they also seem reluctant to [...]

Happy Leavers Day!

Howdy Peeps! Weird times indeed. It is school leavers day for many yr2 and yr 6 pupils....and ALL GCSE and A-Level teens! There are no proms or leavers books, many friends already not in school, but it is still a special day and the start of their next chapter. My daughter will not go to [...]

A Get Well Soon Cocktail

She just needs to catch up on her chemistry when she's back. So [...]
