Our students in exam years will be busy revising, but we do hope they also take time to enjoy a break. Here are our suggestions for some holiday fun, right on your doorstep. Happy Easter!
Easter would not be complete without an egg hunt and there are plenty on offer in our local area. At a number of National Trust locations you can enjoy a leisurely Easter trail-walk before collecting your Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg when you finish. Click here for more details.
