A SCHOOL held a forces family day to welcome people who have moved to Kendrew Barracks in Cottesmore.

The day was organised by Casterton Business and Enterprise College’s forces liaison manager Kim Quigley with the aim of allowing pupils and their parents to take a tour of the school and ask questions and meet staff members including the principal Victoria Crosher. They also enjoyed a hog roast lunch.

Denise Hack, attended with her 13-year-old son Rhys. She also has a daughter who will be attending Rutland County College.

She said: “We have been made very welcome. Normally we don’t have much choice which school our children attend but we had the choice of several in this area.

“We chose Casterton Business and Enterprise College because we were impressed with their Ofsted report and it is a small friendly college which will be good for my son coming from a very small school in Cyprus.”

The school said the day was a resounding success helping to alleviate worries that accompany moving to a new school.
