How proud we were to receive an email following the Year 5 visit to the National Space Centre commending our boy for their excellent behaviour.  Shivarj was mentioned individually in the email as particularly polite and well mannered.  Justifiably he is our Student of the Week. Well done, Shivarj for being an excellent ambassador for Nottingham High School!
