Skiing and snowboarding
Snow sports sessions have been very popular this year, with 30 Year 7s taking beginners' lessons and progressing to the lift pass sessions. We regularly have a group of over 30 at the chill factor on a Thursday after school. Mr Pryor is hoping to run one more beginners' course next term if your son or daughter wants to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
