For those of you new to the school, Grey Matter is our own book which contains a piece of writing from every child in the school. Copies of previous years’ books are on display in the hall of the Upper School.
The proofs are now with the publishers and we will supply one copy for each family and the sum of £8.00 will be added to your account.
