High Borrans Trip For Year 7

Due to the high level of interest shown in the trip, we feel that there is a good possibility it will be oversubscribed. In the interests of fairness, if there is over subscription we will draw names out of a hat on the 8th of December, which was the original deadline for deposits, and students will be informed if they have a place. A reserves list will also be created.
As such, ParentPay will not open until that date for students who get a place. Any cheques handed in by students who don’t get a place will be returned uncashed.
Thank you.
