Christmas break 2021

Now that we are in December, it is safe to mention the C word!

Yes, Christmas is fast approaching… hopefully a more normal one for everyone than last year.

Below are details of our Christmas closure and New Year re-opening dates.

  • Last session before Christmas: Thursday 16th December 2021.
  • Reopen: Thursday 6th January 2022. (School officially reopens Tuesday 4th January, but this is an inset day so we have followed suit).

It has been a pleasure to be back on the mats this year, we have trained almost without a pause since the club reopened so enjoy the winter break.
