Welcome back to school! We hope you have had a wonderful summer break and are ready to bring enthusiasm and curiosity to all the learning we have planned for you. Most exciting of all will be our visit to Leicester Space Centre. Letters for this will be sent out soon with all the information you need. This is always a brilliant day, many budding astronauts are inspired by the fun learning experiences on this trip!
