Quote from a parent of Junior Voices;
'Hard to find new superlatives to express what an inspiring experience this has been for my son. So enjoyable, and ''Well Done!'' Having moved here just 6 months ago from an area of the Uk that has no opportunities to rival Leicestershires wide ranging and inclusive offering, we feel very lucky! Thank you to all involved.
