Enjoying the race!


Free British Cycling youth coaching sessions have been enjoyed by members of the school over the past few months after setting up in Brambleside last winter.  Members of the eco team have helped support this over the past few months by writing an article in the Bugle, delivering a whole school assembly, making posters and promoting the ‘create a logo and a name the club’ competition.
