We cheered the Tour of Britain past Alnwick Castle



The sun shone for our Whole School Trip at Alnwick Gardens. Happy days :-)  




On Tues 9 June our fantastic new minibus was officially presented to us by The Lord's Taverners.  They handed over an ENORMOUS key to George and Ellen, our School Ambassadors. We absolutely love our new minibus - thank you to everyone involved in making this possible.



We held a school election to vote in an Ambassador and Vice-Ambassador. They will represent Barndale at events throughout the year.

Please welcome George and Ellen as Ambassador and Vice Ambassador respectively.



Our Super Sports Stars off to the Para Games in Berwick... and the Barndale Robin hopped onto the minibus dashboard - he wanted to come too!
