The Parents’ Association will be supporting a new touch typing course starting from September 2018. The course will be booked through the College and run as an after-school club over 10 weeks. There will be one course each term with a maximum number of 18 spaces per course. The PA is pleased to support this activity with a subsidy towards the cost of the course. Over the school year,, a total of 54 places will be available at a cost of £230 per student.  The place will be allocated on a first come first served basis in the following order of priority:

  1. Year 7
  2. Year 8

The PA funding of £70 per student has been allocated on the basis of 54 spaces. In the event that fewer spaces are taken up than we have provided for, the PA will look at increasing the rebate.

  • Your daughter must attend the course for at least 8 of the 10 sessions
  • Register your details with the PA and give consent for data processing
