Year 8 Enrichment Week

Monday 24th June – Friday 28th June 2019.

Please be advised of our planned Enrichment Week for boys in Year 8 which takes place in June. The week is mostly made up of curriculum based activities that we would otherwise do throughout the year. Your son will spend a day with various departments getting involved with extension work related to that subject area. At this stage I wish to outline the planned week and request that you complete the attached consent form and make a payment that will allow us to make the necessary arrangements. The cost is minimal as we wish to keep it as low as possible.
