Thank you Intech! - 29.06.17
Another thanks is in order and that is to Intech Telecoms for sponsoring our Therapy Dog Fudge for £500! Fudge is loved by all the children and his presence alone can take a child into a calm and collected mindset almost immediately. As many of you will know, pet food and vets bills can easily mount up and so donations like these are incredibly important to us. Thanks again Intech!
Thank you Cafe Saxophone! - 23.06.17
A really big thank you to Cafe Saxophone and Pete Thomas who have so generously donated £2000 towards music sessions for the children! They have been well underway and the children absolutely adore them. We will be uploading some images into our gallery soon!

Thanks from Fudge
Today we welcomed Medhurst to the school and thanked them for their kind donation towards our therapy dog Fudge. Children from the school council were fantastic helpers, and had part of their morning at The Range picking out the dog toys that they had agreed in their meetings!
We have held an in school competition for redesigning our classroom courtyards. Each class had £20 to buy materials and different creative ideas have been flowing ever since!
The competition isn't quite over yet, but the transformations have been simply stunning!
Springwell Zebra Conservation
Springwell has had the pleasure of getting involved with the Marwell led initiative for Zebra Conservation. Many businesses and school have decorated zebra statues in preparation for them to be stationed around the city to raise awareness for the cause, before they are auctioned off for charity.
