The Guardian: Should schools serve local food?

Since the appointment of Steve Ashburn as Rossett’s executive chef the school’s food offer to students has moved to locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.  We were contacted recently by the Guardian newspaper regarding a story they were investigating on the reasons for sourcing food locally.  This national article has now gone live and shows Rossett as a leading school when it comes to nutrition and the use of locally sourced, quality ingredients in its meals.  Please click the link to read the article:

Thank you to everyone involved in Acoustic Night this week.  The evening was a great success with a range of excellent musical performances by students from all year groups in an ‘unplugged’ setting.

The lost property cupboard is overflowing and includes at least 20 coats, 5 PE kits and lots of other unnamed items of school uniform.  If your child has ‘lost’ any uniform please ask them to come to the First Aid area to look through the many items of clothing. The cupboard will be cleared at Easter.
