We are thrilled to announce the arrival of the John Bramston Library Bus. We are very grateful to Fowlers Transport who generously donated this amazing gift to the school and to Shawbrook B and Daniel S (a parent at the school) who helped to make this happen.

We need your help now, as we are long way from the bus being a library. Be part of this fantastic project. We need volunteers to give their time and skills. Can you help, do you know someone who can?  Let's do this!
