My Happy Christmas message goes to the wonderful children at Ivy Chimneys. You make Ivy an absolutely delightful place to learn and experience new things. I just hope that's how Ivy makes you feel too. Also, Happy Christmas to the fantastic community of past and present parents and governors that have shaped Ivy to be an amazing school for the children in Epping. Finally, a Happy Christmas to the best staff team on the planet, I hope you are having a well deserved break and family time.
