Arriving at School

Summer Activities Week

 Letters have now been sent out, confirming places on the Youth Moves summer activities week. Due to the large interest in this event, we have unfortunately not been able to give all applicants a place.

The activities week takes place from Monday 7th August - Friday 11th August, 10am - 3pm. Students will be registered in the morning from the back of the sports hall; there will be a staff member near reception on the first day to show you where to go.

Students will need to bring a packed lunch every day as we do not have access to the school canteen during this week. On certain days they will be required to bring swimming kits and spare clothes/ shoes - we will remind students of the days when they are on the program.


 If you would like your child to use the school bus service from September, you will need to apply for a place.

Please email ( or call (01173532800) the school office to reserve a space.  If your child used the bus during Transition week, they are NOT automatically added to the list for September. Please check the Routes and Prices before applying for the space.





If you have any queries on the above information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you in September.
