Congratulations to Team North on an amazing half marathon

Click here to see photos of our amazing team of runners taking part in the Colchester Half Marathon on Sunday 24 March. The Team North runners were an inspiration and the staff and governors who gave up their time to be marshals helped make sure runners and traffic were safe along the route.

Thanks also to everyone who supported the team on the day and made a donation. If you have not yet done so please click here to sponsor Team North and help us continue to raise money to fund trips and activities for the children at North Primary School and Nursery
