Year 7 Immersion in January

I am pleased to announce that Year 7 Humanities and Arts Immersion for the next expedition is to the Houses of Parliament in London.

Both Skipper and Admiral will need to be at school for 6.15am on 4th January and we are due to arrive back 7.30-8pm depending on traffic.

All students (bar those on free school meals) need to bring a packed lunch. Ā Students may want to bring some money with them, as there will be an opportunity to buy something to eat on the way home during theĀ stop at the service station.

We ask that students dress smartly for this visit, no jogging bottoms, hoodies, football shirts or hats of any form.

If you need any further information please contact myself via email [email protected]
