No, it takes more than a stiflingly hot week of…

Summer Fete

Well the sun certainly shone on this year’s Summer Fete! With temperatures approaching 30 degrees, it may go down as one of our hottest.

Blue Coat General Election Fever

As the UK went to the polls to decide the next government, Blue Coat children were voting in their own election. The crucial decision?
