Another busy and very productive month here at Tynecastle, with a well-earned rest for most during the October break and two very exciting opportunities for students and staff who were on the Science Florida Trip and the Performance Football Trip to Madrid. While focusing very much on Parents’ Nights, reporting and ensuring that our students are working to potential, we are also very much looking forward to our Place2Be Event, Book Week and the Locality Dance Show over the coming weeks. I hope to see you at these and other events. Hazel Kinnear, Head Teacher
