Golf for All

As a conclusion to the half-term of Golf in PE, the Year 7, 8 & 9 will spend their last Games lesson before the break at Formby Golf Centre.

We have negotiated some significant discounts. There they will have the opportunity to either play the nine hole pitch & putt (£3) or go on the driving range (£2 per bucket of balls). They do not need to bring boots for that games lesson. Bring clubs if you have them; if not they will be provided.

Year 9 may arrive to school in school tracksuits.

Running Club continues every Monday until 5:00pm

Portugal Rugby Tour

Raffle tickets arrive later this week for the Portugal Tour so please ask the pupils to come and collect them from Mr Armstrong’s office. The draw will take place at a Wine-Tasting evening on Saturday 26th November at Waterloo Rugby Club. Details and tickets to follow.
