Work has already started and it will be beautiful. It will be formally opened during the School Mission which will take place on 9 and 10 July 2015. The plans for the garden are as follows:

There has been much reference to a certain tv programme being thirty years old this week but that pales into insignificance when we think of Mrs Pat Limb our midday supervisor. On Thursday Pat celebrated thirty years of service to Saint John Houghton which is a wonderful achievement. Students presented Pat with some flower and cards to mark the occasion. Congratulations to Pat and here’s to the next thirty years.
Next time you visit us please take time to check our lovely new art work in our reception. The work was completed by Lucy Savory from Eaton Stationery who took key words from our school prayer and mission statement as inspiration for the work. I do hope you like it as much as I do.
