Notices to Parents

Adventure this Easter – a message to parents of Third and Fourth Formers from the Director of Activities
The Easter Outward Bound Experience is open to any Third or Fouth Form pupil. Based at Talargerwyn (the school bunkhouse in Wales) during the first six days of the Easter break, it is designed to be a fun yet challenging introduction to outward bound activities. Interested pupils have been requested to talk to parents before emailing on

The event is jointly sponsored by the School's outward bound club ‘The Rovers’ and the CCF. In the spirit of other expeditions and trips run by these respective organisations, the event is low cost - and we believe £150 is great value! Please see 'Forthcoming Events' below for more details.
Lt Colonel Nick David, Director of Activities

For parents of Upper Sixth Fomers

Hosted by the Salopian Club, it will be a chance to celebrate the sporting achievements of the current Upper Sixth. Full details will be published shortly - but please save the date.
