Youth Club

 

The school Youth Club operates on Wednesday evening.  Its activities are mainly recreational and social. 

Itis organised by a school Youth Tutor assisted by a group of fully trained staff.  It adds a most useful dimension to school life in the opportunity for involvement in activities related to both the local and more distant communities of young people.
