A big thank you to all friends and parents who attended our annual sports day on Friday to make it yet again a huge success.

THANK YOU TO ALL THE PARENTS

As my time at St Leonard's comes to an end, I would just like to thank all the parents for all your help and support over the years. Without your help returning letters, kits and picking your children up from all the events, it would make our job much more difficult. I'll miss you all! Mr Bradshaw.
