Has your child had a growth spurt over the summer? That school jumper looking a bit worse for wear? Stock up on quality pre-loved uniform at the sale: in school on Saturday 24 September 10am-12pm. Got something to donate-we're happy to accept clean, quality items.

All at Waldegrave are commemorating the remarkable life and mourning the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II today. We are taking time to reflect on her resilience and sense of duty, in special assemblies, and thinking of her family in their grief. Rest in Peace Ma’am. https://t.co/uD5LfhuOTl
