If you haven’t already contacted the school to let us know that you are interested then please do so ASAP. Please contact Jake Cosford for more details.

The coaches will leave school on Saturday the 24th of November at 8.30am, but we’d like parents to be here at 8.15am please.

The coaches will return at 4pm promptly – so again please come back slightly earlier so you do not miss it. It will be your responsibility if you  miss the coach and you will have to make your own way home.
