We had a wonderful surprise visit from Leicester City Football Club player, Riyad Mahrez, who brought the Premier League Trophy from Leicester to show to the children. It was a day to remember!
The school celebrated its 175th birthday on the 4th November 2016. Bishop Martyn was guest of honour at a special thanksgiving service in Tugby Church to mark the event and gave a talk about the acorn, carved into his shepherd's crook, which reminds us of the Bible parable of the seed. The Year 6 Prefects helped in leading the service and Alfie D presented a special edition Tugby Bear 175 to the Bishop as a thank you for his address. Each class dressed up in period costume and put on a performance about a particular historical theme they were studying in school. A beautifully decorated birthday cake was made for the occasion by Dr Treadwell and this was officially cut by the CEO of DLAT, Mr Morris.
