As part of your sons Yr 8 History course covering the English Civil War the History department are delighted to offer the chance to visit the National Army Museum in Chelsea to attend a Civil War Workshop.
This event is designed to complement their classroom learning by allowing the boys to gain a hands on experience of Civil War artefacts and weapons. The day also includes the opportunity to see and use these weapons in action.
Admission to the museum and event is free however we will have to cover the cost of transport to and from the museum. In order to make this trip viable we require a voluntary contribution of £10 to pay for the coach. Payment and emergency contact forms should be returned to the Admin Office marked History National Army Museum Trip by Fri 24th May. This is an important deadline as the coach requires confirmation in advance. It is important that we receive this payment, as if not enough people make this contribution the trip will not be able to take place.
However, if for any reason you feel unable to contribute to the running costs of this trip please do not hesitate to contact the school Finance Department prior to application as they will be able to offer advice.
The boys will need to be in school at the usual time for registration in the morning and we should return back to school by 3pm depending on traffic. As this is an offsite day trip the boys will require a packed lunch and an emergency contact form, which is attached to this letter, which should be completed before application.
We hope to make this an excellent experience for you son and look forward to receiving your replies.

Key Stage 3 End of Year Exams
I am writing to inform you of arrangements for end of year exams in Years 7, 8 and 9.
End of year examinations are important for a number of reasons:
- They allow pupils to demonstrate what they have learnt and gives them the opportunity to reach target grades
- They are an important opportunity for the boys to experience terminal examinations and revision which will benefit them when they undertake public examinations from Year 10 onwards.
