Dear Parent/Carer

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.

You will be advised separately about any activities not on this list.
