    Annual Enormous Jumble Sale
    The annual Jumble Sale went ahead last Saturday and was a great success. We had a huge amount of visitors who enjoyed the bargains and the amazing cakes at the café.

    Many thanks to all of you who have donated, baked and volunteered your time to support this event.

    A massive thank you must also go to Mary Kavanagh for coordinating the event. The Jumble sale really couldn’t happen without her energy and dedication.


    Parents’ Forum - CANCELLED
    Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our Parents’ Forum which was due to take place on 27 November. We will be continuing with our Parent Forums through 2019 with dates in March and May. More information on speakers for those events nearer the time.


    Easy Fundraising
    As it is getting to that time of year we would just like to remind you of an easy way that you can help raise money for the school whilst you are doing your Christmas shopping.

    When you shop online at over 3000 retailers including John Lewis, Tesco, M&S and Joules the school receives a small free donation.

    To get started you can sign up for free on Easyfundraising


    Can you Help CASCA?
    CASCA can only function with your help. All of the committee members and all event leads and helpers are volunteers. We urgently need more help. We have vacancies on the committee and need leads to run events throughout the year. We have openings to lead on the Table Top Sale, Quiz Night and Summer Fest. These are great opportunities to meet people or get a group of friends together to run these events. CASCA has a wealth of knowledge and experience of these events and is here to support all the teams.

    If you would like to help please, please do get in touch at If we don’t get volunteers, these events will not be able to run and we will lose valuable funds for the school.

    We would love to hear from you!


    Dramstock 2019
    Some early news on Dramstock 2019. This is a fundraising evening of entertainment featuring a mix of performances from student and parent bands. Are you in a band? Would you like to perform? If so, we would love to hear from you. Do we have any actors or actresses who would like to give a reading on the night? We have some brief readings around music that we would love to have read between the music. If you are interested please could you contact Royston,
