St Luke’s and St James’ schools, both part of the Ted Wragg Trust, are working together to host a range of community events this summer.  

The events are open to families of children at St Luke’s, St James’ and Whipton Barton Primary and are all free, places just need to be booked in advance!

The schools want to share their facilities with the community and help to bring local people together.  

There will be a cooking competition at the Ready, Steady, Cook event with ingredients provided on the 24th of June at 4pm at St Luke’s.  The group will also be joined by a local food charity to learn about budgeting for meals.

On Thursday the 4th of July at 5pm, St James will be hosting a family portrait session.  Not only will those attending get a portrait to take home, they will also learn about photography.

Fitness classes will be taking place at St Luke’s every Monday from the 3rd of June to the 15th of July at 5pm.  These will be run by a qualified instructor and all levels of fitness are welcome.

Lastly, St Luke’s is holding an open practice with Pinhoe Community Voices Choir on Wednesday the 12th of June at 3.45pm.  They will be singing some well-known pop songs, as well as some from famous musicals. 

Mr Harrison Littler, Headteacher at St Luke’s C of E School said:

“We’re really excited to be opening up our schools to the community. We’re keen to find new ways that we can support families by bringing together resources and expertise from across the city, to deliver what our community needs.”

Emily Harper, Head Teacher at St James School said:

“I am delighted that we have been able to work closely with St Luke’s and Whipton Barton to design these free summer sessions. I am so excited to welcome families into the school during the summer term for some fun activities.”

Moira Marder, CEO of the Ted Wragg Trust said:

“Everyone at the trust is so proud of the staff at St Luke’s and St James for coming together to offer the local community these exciting events over the summer.  At the Ted Wragg Trust we believe all schools should be the heart of their local community and it’s brilliant to see these schools embodying this.”
