We run welcome events at the beginning of the academic year which usually include Welcome Party and a Town Trail.

Our annual programme of spring and summer trips focus on local places of interest not easily accessible by public transport and relies on a team of volunteer drivers. Recent destinations have included Stoke Bruerne, a visit to historic Oundle, riverside walk and picnic at Olney, and a trip to Salcey Forest which is usually followed by a barbecue.
