Stationers' Crown Woods Academy

The Master, Ian Locks was, extraordinarily, given responsibility for a gun on 26 June 2015. Happily it was simply the starting pistol for the staff race at the SCWA Sports Fest, see photos below. Staff numbers seemed to be the same after the race as before so all went well.
