New Music School Year

The new school year will begin shortly. Draft tuckshop rotas have been published here (password required) and the Calendar and Coming Events updated. If you are expecting to be on the rota and haven’t had an email, please let me know… email John. As always, with people moving on at the end of the school year, we are in need of a few more volunteers to ensure we can continue to run the tuckshop on a Friday evening and Saturday morning every week. If you would like to join us please contact us via the Tuckshop Volunteer Form.
