Pupil Packs

We’re trying to make our communication with you easier and more efficient. Please will all pupils collect and complete our new ‘Mareli Pupil Packs.’ Part of this pack will be for you to complete and return to us, the remaining part for you to keep. They will replace any previously held details we have e.g email addresses/mobile phone numbers. We will also cease using mail chimp, in favour of a normal email with a newsletter simply attached as a pdf.


It is with a heavy heart that we write this post. Dot (Judy’s Mom) AKA Great Mama passed away during the early hours of Sunday morning. She was such a huge part of our dance school, particularly behind the scenes – she spent so many hours sat next to Mom ‘cracking the whip’ as she’d call it!
