HERO - Here Everyday Ready On Time

We want all our children to be Fonthill Heroes to give them the best chance to be successful. If they are here, on time with the right equipment and in the right frame of mind, they are more likely to achieve the best they can.  We celebrate our heroes with certificates, prizes and special assemblies.
