Educational Visits & Visitors

Please check below for the proposed educational visits and visitors across this year's learning. 

To reduce the financial burden on families, we invite visitors into school as much as possible. We do include one educational visit that requires a coach and this is highlighted below to allow families to plan.

Details of each trip will be emailed out nearer the time with more detailed information along with requests for payment donation.
