Pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have said that some of their highlights were the night hike and the recycled fashion show.

PaWS choir have again been awarded distinction and the Allen Trophy at the Eastbourne Music and Arts Festival. They sang 3 contrasting songs including one written by Mr Robin Hellier, a grandparent of a choir member. It was a special moment for him and his family, watching his granddaughter, perform a solo at the beginning of the song. The choir was well supported by their teacher, Miss Anna Romano, and their families who came along to watch.
