Driving to work this morning, the fields were much greener after all the rain that we have had recently and my thoughts were that it makes the world seem more hospitable than it has felt of late.  With the restrictions on the wearing of face masks lifted, it has been so lovely seeing the…

What a welcome back to school we have had so far!  Our Year 7 pupils have joined us and I can honestly say that they have settled into life at St Edmund Arrowsmith without any problems, the whole staff have been very impressed with them.  Considering that these pupils had not had the opportunity…

It was a privilege to welcome back to the school Ryan Taylor, our Head Boy from 2011, who came to speak to our Year 10 pupils on Thursday during our assembly. Ryan gave a fascinating insight into his adventures since he left us and his opening slide was a picture of him and Theresa May with the…
