  • Year 3/4 London Trip

      Year 3/4 had an excellent trip to London.  We saw so many amazing sites including Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye.  A boat trip along the Thames took us to the Tower of London where we saw the Crown Jewels and Tower Bridge.  The children represented Millbrook brilliantly and their positive behaviour was commented on by many members of the public.

Thank you to all the parents who have completed our on-line anti-bullying questionnaire. If you want to read our anti-bullying policy, please see the policies section on our website.
