Westmorland Show - Permission for Absence
by School Office - Wednesday, 15 June 2016, 1:09 PM

Please see the letter below with our annual guidance for students wanting to take part in the Westmorland Show on Thursday, 8 September. As part of a farming community, QES recognises the importance of the Show for those directly involved. But the school will not authorise absences without prior permission.
