What’s Been Said
“Thank you so much for my warm welcome. I had a great time. AWGS is a lovely, lovely school. Smiling seems to be the default setting.“
‘There’s a lovely family feel to the school, it feels as if it has been here for ever.’
‘I recently spent time at School, in my professional capacity as a Library Systems Trainer and Cataloguer. I was e impressed by all that I encountered at Alderbury. A great and positive atmosphere, caring and helpful staff who were always willing to help, however busy they were, and pupils who were a real credit to the school.’
‘Pupils are very reflective and think deeply about issues such as ‘Peace’ ‘Values’; this confirms strengths in their spiritual, moral and social and cultural development’

Communication via emails and phone calls will be dealt with during school hours. The most effective way of making contact with staff remains to speak with them at the school door or to contact the school office. There is no expectation that staff will check their emails when at home during the evening or at weekends. I hope this helps.
Bank Holiday 2020
I am sure you have all seen in the press about the change to the May Bank Holiday in 2020 so that it coincides with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. This means that next year, the Bank Holiday will take place on Friday 8th May not Monday 4th May.
Year R trip to Sir Harold Hillier Gardens
Our youngest children had a lovely, dry day out at Hillier Gardens on Tuesday. They learnt about the world around us using their senses. They found a tree whilst blind folded, walked through the bamboo tunnel (more than once!), found everyday objects that were camouflaged and made sticky caterpillars from herbs.
Bring a Broom
Bring a Broom morning is Saturday 22nd June and with lots of jobs to be done we will be putting up a sign-
Thank you to all our parents, grandparents etc who park safely on Firs Road and consider our neighbours. A reminder to park on the wooded side of Firs Road to avoid double parking which makes it very difficult for coaches or emergency vehicles to gain access, should they need to.
Please also do not park in the staff car park when dropping off or collecting. Thank you for your support.
