In September 2007 the school moved to a newly built site on Princess Diana park.

In 2003, the disused buildings of the former junior school were badly damaged in an arson attack.

Famous quotes containing the words school, community, orchard and/or fields:

    At school boys become gluttons and slovens, and, instead of cultivating domestic affections, very early rush into the libertinism which destroys the constitution before it is formed; hardening the heart as it weakens the understanding.
    Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797)

    Populism is folkish, patriotism is not. One can be a patriot and a cosmopolitan. But a populist is inevitably a nationalist of sorts. Patriotism, too, is less racist than is populism. A patriot will not exclude a person of another nationality from the community where they have lived side by side and whom he has known for many years, but a populist will always remain suspicious of someone who does not seem to belong to his tribe.
    John Lukacs (b. 1924)

    ... transform
    into our flesh our
    deaths, crossing the street, plum, quince,
    living in the orchard and being
    hungry, and plucking
    the fruit.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    The need to exert power, when thwarted in the open fields of life, is the more likely to assert itself in trifles.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
