Consent Letters:

All students have received letters, kit lists and consent forms. Please can parents/carers read the information in the letter and make note of the expedition mobile number. The expedition will start at BGS and finish in Ilkley on the Saturday afternoon. 

Please can consent forms be returned to Mr Morse before half term; If a student cannot attend one of the expedition dates please let me know ASAP so I can move groups to the correct dates. More information will be communicated to the students around Easter time by email.
