We believe this is a reflection of all the hard work our pupils and staff put into developing a sense of a fair and just community.”

Adam Shulman, Director of Simply Education, expressed his feelings on the success of the Anti-Bullying Competition: “When we planned the Anti-Bullying Campaign we had hoped that we would influence our schools to look at their anti-bullying procedures and ensure that all their children were learning in a safe and productive environment. Having received the response we have, we are both humbled and proud of the work the pupils have created and the geography that this campaign has reached.”
