Just a quick update to say that I had the pleasure of taking ten delightful children to the area final for sports hall athletics. We battled against five other schools who had also qualified for the finals. Events included relay racing, throwing, jumping and sprinting. The children were polite, organised, determined and competitive. With five [...]

It is always so wonderful to welcome the Salvation Army band to finish the term, and a joy to welcome a playground full of our Willow Brook family (past and present!) to celebrate through carols and festive songs.  For me, it has always marked the start of Christmas and it's quite special to hear our [...]

 Our Willow Brook card players have enjoyed a fabulous first two sessions with our mentors from the Keyworth Bridge Club and, I must say, we are getting quite clever when it comes to card tricks! We have learned the art of partner game-play, sorted hearts from diamonds and even practised our poker faces! This is [...]

Then it [...]
