PSC Events during the Coronavirus outbreak

We are running the following events, for Berkshire families, online via Zoom. They are free (£5 refundable booking deposit) or at a nominal cost. Some events have a small number of places available for non-Berkshire families. Please click on the highlighted event title for further information and to book.

We had hoped to resume face to face events for the Autumn term. Unfortunately, the latest Government guidelines mean that this is not possible so our events will continue online.
