On Games afternoons, boys can be picked up from the playing fields by prior arrangement – written notice is required, and boys should be picked up well before the coach is due to leave (around 3.45 p.m.).

Vocab Express Global Challenge

For the second year running, Years 6, 7 and 8 competed in the Vocab Express Global Challenge.
