Each year we celebrate harvest at Woodthorpe by holding a special assembly, singing songs, reflecting on what harvest means to us and others as well as collecting food and other items for Birmingham City Mission, to support them in their charity work. Please see below a letter regarding this and other useful information.

Many thanks for your support

Guitar tuition change of day

Unfortunately, Mr Firth will no longer be teaching guitar at Woodthorpe. Although we are sad to see him leave, we now have a new guitar teacher called Mr Duff. He will be teaching in school on Tuesday morning. Therefore, can all pupils bring in their guitars THIS Tuesday (5th October).

Many Thanks
