On the 28th of April 2016 at the early time of 5.45 a.m. 47 pupils and 4 teachers departed on the annual football trip. With the places all being secured the previous September the excitement was fever pitch with so much anticipation and expectation. Over the course of the next few days the group enjoyed great experiences at Gretna Outlet, Everton vs Bournemouth football match, a tour of Anfield, shopping at the Trafford Centre, a visit to the Imperial War Museum and a visit to Rheged Outdoor Centre. The recurring question throughout the trip was, "When do the permission forms get given out for next year?"
Special mentions to all pupils for their impeccable behaviour throughout the trip and it was enriching for the group to be praised by hotel staff and by members of the public.
