Law Primary are asking for all ex-pupils to check at home and see if they have any books in their possession which belong to Law – either from the library or Miss Allen’s (as she then was) collection. It would make a huge difference to the school if these books could be returned. Pupils can hand books in to the office at NBHS and we will return them to Law. Many thanks!
If you are on study leave and still have maths textbooks to return (or any others), you must bring them in on the day of your exam or before. We need them for new classes in three weeks. If you can’t find your teacher and hand them to another staff member instead that’s OK, but please make sure your name is written inside the textbook.

Girls’ rugby starts on Thursday 11 April, 4pm on the grass pitches.
If you are interested, please come along on Thursday to the P.E. Department.
This is an introduction to rugby for girls – there will be lots of ball skills and fitness, and then some contact for the girls who would like to take part in this element. If you don’t want to do any contact, that’s absolutely fine, there will always be non-contact options for those who don’t want to do contact.
If you have any questions, please see Miss Parry.
If you are buying items of school clothing for your child over the Easter holiday, please ensure that they meet the requirements of the school dress code, in particular: plain black footwear, black school trousers (not jeans or leggings) and skirts of a reasonable length. School dress is an important aspect of the ethos of the school and it promotes the idea of dressing appropriately for a place of work. We really appreciate the support of our parents in ensuring that this happens.
Next term, there will be a concerted focus on getting the dress code right with all our pupils. We will then be able to focus exclusively on what really matters in school - learning and teaching.
Details of the school dress code can be found in the School Information section of the website.
