This includes the option of one of three trips abroad. All of the trips will be available to any pupil from years 7-9. 

The original Paris and Amsterdam trips are now FULL!! 

However, there are limited places on the trip to EuroSpace and the Caves of Han in Belgium, and then onto Paris for a day and evening at Disneyland. See below for further details. This trip is being discounted to £666 (or £333 for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium). Please contact Mr Dugdale at school to discuss this availability.

For the pupils who have not booked onto any of the residentials or trips abroad, there will be other enrichment activities during Enrichment week (8th to 12th July 2024).  

So far, provisional tickets have been booked for the Etihad stadium, Smithills Country Farm, Manchester Palace Theatre, Anglo Recycling plant, and Manchester Museum.
