All L6th cadets going on August's Aviemore trip need to do the Basic Swimming Test tomorrow at parade time. This will be conducted at Sutton Grammar's pool, and start at 4.10pm. It is to be conducted in regular swimwear (see test requirements below). The test will be followed by the pre-Aviemore briefing.
