Summer Events 2023

We are very excited to be launching our Summer Events programme again this year at Benhurst school. There will be four Summer camps - two for children aged 3-5 yrs and two for children aged 6 yrs and above. All details are now on our website and you can book through ClassForKids.

All places are available on a first come first served basis, be quick as these spaces always sell fast:)

Exams- We will be holding an IDTA exam session in October. As we had three exam days last October and the majority of students took an exam, there won't be as many exam days and not all classes will be doing exams this time. All students taking an exam will be notified by the end of the summer term.

Miss Chantelle- Leaving date is 3rd June

It is with great sadness that I must announce that we will be saying farewell to Miss Chantelle after the May half term. She will be going on an exciting long term travelling trip with her fiancee to South America and Australia. We are very sad to see Miss Chantelle go as she has been an incredible asset to our team. We wish her all the best for the future and hope we get the pleasure of working with her again in the future.

We are thrilled to have Miss Jodie on board who has settled in well and she will be taking over from Chantelle from the 10th June.

As always we have an open door policy and welcome parents to contact us with any concerns or if they just want an update on how their child is doing.

Thank you for you ongoing support.

Best wishes
