Portugal Rugby tour (year 8-upper sixth)

Whilst the balance for the rugby tour isn't yet due, if you are in a position to pay in full soon it would be very helpful as we need to pay the tour company another payment at the end of the month. All tourists need to have paid the deposit in full by the end of the month. 

Rugby raffle- We have some excellent prizes already but anyone in a position to donate a prize, can you please get in touch as soon as possible. Golf fourballs, beauty vouchers and football tickets are ideal. Thank you to those who have already donated prizes. If anyone wants to go on the tour but hasn't yet paid or registered an interest please get in touch.



Anyone keen on the ski-trip to Italy from 15th-21st December, there are still a few places left. This is open to all year groups. If you are interested, please see Mr Williams immediately
