“I write on behalf of the pupils, parents and staff at Berridge Primary School to express my sincere appreciation for your generous donation of the two Kindles as the children’s first prize towards our annual Christmas Fair. Your contribution helped to make this year’s Fair such a resounding success, where we raised the magnificent total of £1973.00.
This money will be most welcome as it will be used to support the local community in continuing to improve the quality of education and offer a range of experiences for all the pupils attending the school.
So, once again thank you for your generous donation. Hope you have a very happy Christmas and a successful New Year.”

These were the kind words of Simon Staiger and Rekha Sood(Head of School/Business manager)

We have been working with Berridge Primary School for a few years now and continue to support them with their attendance projects and any other areas they need support with. We are very happy that we have helped them raise a fantastic amount of money which will be put to good use helping the school to offer a broader range of experiences for the students.

Christmas comes early for Ellis Guilford School!

: December 24, 2015 12:06 pm s Leave your thoughts

Saturday 19th December 2015 saw Nottingham Forest take on MK dons at the city ground and a group of students from Ellis Guilford were in for a Christmas treat as a reward for good performance at school this term.

forest match max 1

Our Nottingham secondary consultant Max accompanied the group of students/staff members to the game and what a day it turned out to be! Upon arriving at the city ground the adults were treated to a glass of prosecco and the students to a complimentary soft drink. They were then directed to the box and had a chance to browse the programme and team sheets in the build up to the game whilst enjoying a pre match meal.

The students were in their element as some of them had never experienced a live football match. It was great to see their faces as the crowd flooded into the stadium before kick-off and it made it even sweeter seeing everyone sat outside in the cold as they were in a warm, cosy box. The excitement didn’t stop there as the mighty reds went 1-0 within the first 3 minutes! What a start! Ryan Mendes then stabbed in at the second attempt from a Daniel Pinillos cross to double Forest’s lead.

The staff and students were in very high spirits going in to half time as the reds were 2-0 up. If this wasn’t enough for them, they were then surprised by ex-forest star Robert Earnshaw who spoke with everyone and also answered any questions we could think of.

It was a great performance from Forest on the day and in the end got the win with the game finishing 2-1. The win moves Forest up to 13th, while MK Dons drop to 21st, just a point above the relegation zone.
