The ANSS Supplementary Schools' Picnic took place on Saturday, 4th July, at East Carlton Country Park in Corby.
On 16th June our all-schools meeting was well attended. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our guest speaker, Matthew Torensen for his input on governance of management committees. This was very well received by our member schools.
