Scout Hut

We mainly use the Scout Hut in Moat Road for all our Tap Classes, it is a great facility and we are also very pleased to be supporting the Scout Movement by utilising their building at quiet times.

There is not much parking at the Scout Hut and many parents find it easier to park at the nearby King’s Leisure Centre, there is a small area to change but it is recommended that the students come ready for their classes.
