The Scoop Week 28th March 2023

I don’t know about you but this term seems to have flown bywith breakneck speed. We have been hindered slightly by delivery delays but inthe next few school weeks you will notice some big changes to our school site.One of the changes that we hope you will see very soon is the addition of somelinden trees (also known as Lime trees) which the school is named after.Lyndhurst means wooden hill with Lime trees on. We are especially excited asone of the distinguishing features of the lime tree is its heart shaped leavesjust as one of the distinguishing features of our school community is ourheart.

Here are this week’s announcements:
