Year 9 Permission Note 2021

In 2021 your daughter will be participating in a number of whole school or whole year group activities. The fees for these activities have been included on school fees and divided evenly across the three billing terms. Please be aware that the College makes group bookings for these activities. In general, refunds cannot be provided if a student is absent on the day of an activity as the fee has already been paid for the activity. Some of the activities she will be participating in are listed below. There may also be other activities taking place during the year which will be also covered by the activities fees. You will be advised separately about any activities not on this list.
