DBS Primary and secondary pupils were involved in a local community project of planting Beech hedging around the RAF war memorial. It was a lovely time when the school and local community worked together and were featured in the local press.

One of the carers of one of the Lingwood pupils went out of her way to stress how good she thought the school was. This included her ringing Ofsted herself during the inspection process after the questionnaire had closed to have her feelings known and noted.
