Class Open French students are bound for Old Trafford

It’s Class Open time of year again, when we have take the visiting French pupils for a day out. This year Class Open, a French educational company, have brought over 89 Year 6 French pupils for a week of English and Sports in a the beautiful setting of Stonyhurst College.


This is the last day of their visit and we’ve brought them to Old Trafford for a tour of the Manchester

United Home Ground, and then we’ll be off to do some shopping at the Trafford Centre.

The children are enthusiastic and excited! They’ve had a great week and this is a fab way to end their stay.

Here are some of the children in their classroom before we set off for Manchester…





Fylde Rubgy away at Bishop’s Stortford

Nice early start for a trip to Bishop’s Stortford with the Fylde Rugby team…GOOD LUCK LADS!!

“Fylde make their first ever visit to Silver Leys, the home of Hertfordshire club Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday (ko 3pm). BS will be looking to turn the tables on Fylde who beat them by 29-22 at the Woodlands in early December. This was Fylde’s last victory in National One and has been followed by 13 defeats, their poorest run in many, many seasons. They will hope to achieve only their second away victory of the season but it will be very tough.  “
